Domaine Laroche - Chablis Vaudevey Premier Cru 2021
Domaine Laroche Description
The 2021 vintage could almost be described as late as we have been used to earlier and earlier harvests in recent years. The manual harvest started on September 21st in the parcels of Vieille Voye / Vaillons / Butteaux and Blanchots. Following episodes of rain, the sanitary pressure was present but controlled by our technical teams. In the end, the juices presented promising balanced profiles which were confirmed during the maturation. The tastings conducted in the cellars showed the finesse and the good acidity present in the wines.
Les Vaudevey is located in a cool and narrow valley. Sun appears in the early morning and lasts until mid-afternoon. The ripening of
grapes is slow, which helps aromas to concentrate and acidity to be kept. One single plot of almost 10ha. There are more or less 5 producers of this climate in total.
Wine Spectator: 91 Points
A sleek white, with aromas and flavors of gravel dust framing floral, green plum, kumquat and fresh thyme notes. Intense, with fine balance and length. Drink now through 2028. 3,662 cases made, 732 cases imported.
Burghound: 90-93 Points
Classic Chablis aromas of iodine, mineral reduction and oyster shell add breadth to the notes of green apple and citrus rind. There is first-rate intensity to the detailed and stony medium-bodied flavors that display excellent persistence on the youthfully austere and very dry finale. This is certainly tightly wound today but I suspect that it will be approachable on the younger side as Vaudevey typically is.
