Pressing: Whole bunches in a pneumatic press, then 12 hours settling at 12 to 15°C in specially designed wide tanks – these accelerate the natural settling process, hence reducing the need for sulphur dioxide. Yeast: Selected. Fermentation: 21 days at 18°C. 15% in French oak barrel and 85% in stainless steel. Malolactic fermentation: 100 %. Maturation: 9 months. 85% in stainless steel vats, 15% in French oak barrels on average 3 to 4 years old. Left on lees; stirred as required. Fining: Bentonite. Bottling: Minimum filtration to preserve the maximum natural character of the wine, then bottling under low pressure on a bottling line designed to protect quality.
Domaine Laroche epitomises Chablis, with impeccable quality and a remarkable 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 and he remains actively involved in the business, along with his wife Gwenael. As part of their aim to retain purity and minerality in the finished wine, Laroche was the first Burgundian producer to move to screwcaps in 2002.
Vineyard region: 98.82 hectares in total; Domaine Laroche owns 7.65 ha. This foothill, exposed South-West, is protected from northern wind. With the amassing of heat, ripening starts earlier and lasts longer, thus maturity is complete. This vineyard is planted with very old vines which has its own personality, the Heritage of Chablis.
This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 8 years
