Winemaker's Notes:

Saint Martin Chablis is a pale gold color. The aromas are intense with hints of ripe white fruit and spring blossoms. With flavors of ripe fruit balanced by zesty acidity; lingering fruity finish.
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.
