Domaine Laroche Chablis 1er Cru Vailons Vieilles Vignes 2018
VM91: "The 2018 Chablis Les Vaillons Vieilles Vignes 1er Cru offers green apples, lime, sea spray and light grilled almond notes on a nose that takes a few swirls of the glass to get going. The palate is well balanced, with a faint tang of dried quince and bitter lemon on the entry. I admire the salinity and savory finish of this Vaillons, though I suspect it will show best in its youth. Maybe I’ll be proved wrong!"
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.
The old vines of this sunny famous Premier Cru site create rich wines with stone fruit, spice, and classic minerality. HVE3 certified.
