The Wine

This cuvée also has a small portion of barrel ageing, employed to great effect. ”This the first bottling in May. Also only from Maligny here – the Courgis part has longer elevage as there is a little austerity – so this first bottling has none. Average 30-year-old vines. A bigger nose, a more floral nose too. Hmm – that’s super – mouth-filling and juicy – simply a really excellent wine. I love the tasty energy here.” Burgundy-report.com, Bill Nanson, Jan 2021

About the Wine Maker

Located in the north-west sector of Chablis in the village of Maligny, Pierrick Laroche now runs this family estate which was established by his father in the 1970s. His father gradually gained planting rights and slowly added to the family vineyard holdings over time. In 2010 Pierrick produced his first vintage to great acclaim (his father had previously sold the grapes to La Chablisienne). Pierrick has a degree in oenology from Beaune and after graduating he travelled the world, doing various internships to gain experience before returning home to start making wine and take over the family vineyards for himself. His cellars are built into the side of a hill in the village enabling much of the work to be done by gravity. Vinifications are done classically in stainless steel tanks with some of the Premier and Grand Cru wines aged in used barrels for a small portion of each cuvée where the wines undergo full malolactic. His oldest plot of vines is Les Châtillons, which was planted in early 1970s and is located just behind the hill of Grand Crus.
