The Wine

30 year old vines. Estate grown fruit.
Aging: 1 year. 84% Stainless vat, 16% large format barrels (2-5 years old).
Named after the 12th century church in Chablis, this cuvée is produced from estate grown grapes from vineyards located in the villages of Maligny, Chablis & Fleys. The chalky soils of this area combined with the typical continental climate make for a beautiful expression of Chardonnay that is unique in the world. Fine, mineral, elegant, powerful & racy are only a few of the adjectives that describe this and all great Chablis wines.
The nose is rich and full, with greenish notes that balance nicely with the fine mineral edges and ripe melon fruit. In the mouth, the wine is full with refreshing acidity and great length. Drink with all dishes that prefer a crisp white wine especially oysters and all seafood. Very approachable now, but will develop nicely for 3-8 years.

About the Wine Maker

“It’s no exaggeration to say that Michel Laroche is defined by Chablis in the same way that Michel Chapoutier is by the northern Rhone, or Olivier Humbrecht by Alsace” – Decanter After 45 years at the helm of Domaine Laroche, Michel Laroche embarked on a new project with Margaux, his daughter. Beginning with the 2012 vintage, Domaine d’Henri is named after Michel’s father Henri. Reclaiming the Laroche family vineyards of 22 hct which include 17 plots across Petit Chablis, Chablis, 1er Cru Fourchaume and Beauroy. “Saint Pierre” takes its name from the 12th-century church in Chablis. Thirty-year-old estate vines planted in the villages of Maligny, Chablis, and Fleys are hand-picked, fermented with native yeasts, and aged a year or more in a combination of stainless steel and less than one-third neutral large oak barrels. A classic mix of chalky limestone and clay soils help deliver a Chardonnay that exudes energy and power through that classic Chablisienne combination of minerality and tension.
