Laroche Chablis Grand Cru Reserve de l'Obédience 2007

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. Grand Cru Réserve de l`Obedience shows a fantastic luminous yellow colour. The nose offers a blend of spice, honey, coconut, jasmine and citrus fruit followed by a succulent, firm palate. Fullbodied, yet with a zippy lemon acidity to freshen the powerful fruited finish, this has the intensity to age for over 20 years.
