Winemaker's Notes:

2010 was a vintage of patience and emotion: a rather favorable, dry spring was followed by a mitigating summer. The key to our success was a generous and conveniently timed ripening period in September. Harvest took place successfully in the second half of the month. We picked very healthy, well-balanced, richly flavored grapes, showing liveliness and remarkable wine aromas.
My Notes:

About Domaine Laroche:

For five generations, the Laroche family has produced top-quality wines from the Chablis appellation, and today Domaine Laroche ranks among the most prestigious of Burgundy’s wine producers. In 1998, Laroche’s Les Clos 1996 was named “The Best White Wine in the World” by Wine Spectator.

The origins of the estate date back to 1850, when a vineyard worker names Jean-Victor Laroche bought a small plot of vines. Three generations of modest expansion were followed by a boom in the 1960s when, father and son Henri and Michel Laroche expanded their holdings considerably in the region. The past three decades have seen the domaine flourish under the guidance of Michel, whose commitment to authenticity, purity and typicite has popularized the steely, elegant wine in general – and the Laroche brand in particular – the world over.
