Domaine Laroche Chablis 1er Cru Les Vaudevey 2019
VM90: The 2019 Chablis Les Vaudevey 1er Cru has a pretty nose of tinned white peaches mixed with vanilla pod, showing fine delineation and focus, though not complex. The citrus-fresh palate is vibrant with good acidity, showing subtle peach and pear notes toward the minerally finish. This has a bit of a skip in its step.
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.
