Domaine Laroche - Chablis Les Butteaux Premier Cru 2021
Domaine Laroche Description
This sub-climat of Les Montmains, located at the end of the valley, away from the village will produce powerful and steely wines.
The 2021 vintage only allowed a small quantity to be produced, reinforcing the concentration and intensity of the profile.
“A beautiful width and clarity of aroma – perhaps the best so far. Properly structured, fine, and mouth-watering. A little creamy aspect from the 100% barrel elevage – I’d wait 2 years to start drinking this – There’s a chance it could be even better in the future, today it’s still excellent.” -Bill Nanson

Cool and appealingly layered aromas are comprised by notes of apple, pear, spice and mineral reduction. The sleek, intense and relatively rich, indeed even generous, medium-bodied flavors retain good focus and cut on the impressively long, chalky and bitter lemon-inflected finale. Excellent potential.
The 2021 Chablis Les Butteaux 1er Cru, usually one of the finest parcels harvested, has more intensity on the nose compared to other Premier Crus from Laroche - this is very expressive. The palate is very well balanced with fine grip and acidity, taut and linear with beautifully interwoven orange zest, this is a superb Les Butteaux that should age well in bottle.
