Winemaker's Notes

"Incorporating extensive estate holdings around Prehy, Beine, and the northern edge of the appellation, the Laroche 2006 Chablis Saint Martin displays lemon and Persian melon in a juicy, refined, refreshing context, but with subtle chalky, salty, and savory mineral nuances and a bright, attractively lean finish. It should prove versatile for at least the next 2-3 years. All of the Laroche crus are from domaine fruit, and most incorporate a small share of wine raised in barrel as well as a small portion blocked from undergoing malo-lactic transformation.

Winemaker Denis de la Bourdonnaye and proprietor Michel Laroche – who export 85% of their wines, and were Burgundy's pioneers (along with Verget) in utilizing screw cap closures – are dedicated to the proposition that Chablis can be seductive and sensual while remaining true to its terroir, and they have proven this in bottle with their outstanding 2005 and 2006 collections." 88 Points

"Bright, pale yellow. Brisk aromas of nectarine and minerals. Juicy and energetic, with complex flavors of grapefruit, peach and brown spices nicely framed by good mineral cut. This displays lovely freshness of fruit. Finishes with a positive hint of youthful bitterness. Seems better balanced and more accessible than the '05 version. An excellent village wine in the making." 88-90 Points

Learn About Chablis

Chablis got a bad rap when its name was plastered on large jug wines in the 1980's and 90's. Luckily, the wine in those jugs has nothing in common with the actual region. Wines produced in Chablis are some of the most unique in the world. Typical descriptors of a classic Chablis include a greenish tinge on the wine, minerality and crisp acidity balanced by a round mouthfeel....
