Domaine Laroche Chablis 2008

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. Chablis St Martin is vibrant yellow in colour, with flecks of green. The wine is lively and fresh on the nose, with intense pear, red apple and spice notes. On the palate it is generous in body, with a classic mineral zip and lively acidity to match. The finish is long, clean and precise, with an attractive, creamy feel.
