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.

Critical Acclaim

"I tasted a wide range of wines during my visit at Domaine Laroche. The estate is back in the US market after an absence of several years. These are rich, textured wines that generally show the more opulent side of Chablis. Over the last few years, Domaine Laroche has begun to focus on organic viticulture and a greater reliance on indigenous yeasts, which is rare in Chablis. One of the unique aspects of these wines is that they are all bottled under screwcap. Winemaker Gregory Viennois told me the 2011 harvest started on September 12, which was towards the later side for the village. Viennois noted that potential alcohols and acidities were quite similar for both 2010 and 2011, which is quite unusual among the top domaines in Chablis."
