Domaine Laroche Chablis 1er Cru Les Vaudevey 2018
VM91: The 2018 Chablis Les Vaudevey 1er Cru offers attractive honeysuckle and orange pith scents on a nose that gradually achieves greater delineation with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a lively opening: lemon zest, dried orange peel, and a touch of ginger coming through with aeration. Quite long on the finish, this is a fine, easygoing Vaudevey that I suspect will be best broached in the flush of youth.
Domaine Laroche is directly linked to the history of Chablis. It is one of the region’s largest and most respected Grand Cru owners, and its headquarters dates back to the middle ages.
Laroche is one of only three proprietors in Les Vaudevey, a cool terroir that allows for slow ripening. Racy and layered with delicate minerality and lemon peel, this is a 1er Cru for true Chablis lovers! HVE3 certified.
