Domaine Laroche Chablis 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Domaine Laroche epitomises Chablis, with impeccable quality, and remarkable ownership of 100 hectares of vineyards, including 30 ha of Premier and 6 ha of Grand Crus. Founded in 1850, there is still a dynamism which permeates everything they do. Michel Laroche merged with another family-owned producer, Jeanjean, in 2009; he remains actively involved as does chief winemaker Denis de la Bourdonnaye. As part of their aim to retain purity and minerality in the finished wine, Laroche were the first Burgundian producer to move to screwcaps in 2002. Domaine Laroche Chablis Grand Cru Los Clos shows vivid yellow in colour. Generous stone fruit aromas and honey complexity emanate from the nose. while a powerful, taut palate that balances mouthwatering acidity with round, juicy fruit depth seduces. This combination will ensure it ages for 15 to 20 years.

Wine Tasting NotesCrystal clear with hints of gold. Clean with a subtle hint of apples and undergrowth. Vigorous, typical Chablis with good minerality.
