Origin

Les Blanchots is one of 7 Chablis Grand Crus; it comprises 12 hectares (of which Domaine Laroche own 4.5) and is known for its fragrant aromas and elegance. The steep, south-southeast facing slope has excellent exposure to the sun; the poor Kimmeridgean soils give ageing potential of 10-20 years at least.

Grape Variety

100% Chardonnay

2017 was the earliest vintage in the past two decades in Chablis. Due to hard frosts that hit the vines in April, the harvest was on the smaller side, but the quality of the grapes has resulted in wines with wonderful balance.

Alcohol Percentage

12.5%

Producer

Domaine Laroche epitomises Chablis, with impeccable quality and a remarkable 100 hectares of vineyards, including 30 hectares of Premier Cru and six hectares of Grand Cru sites. Founded in 1850, there is still a dynamism which permeates everything they do. Michel Laroche merged with another family-owned producer, Jeanjean, in 2009 and he remains involved in the business, along with his wife Gwénaël. As part of their aim to retain purity and minerality in the finished wine, Laroche was the first Burgundian producer to move to screwcaps in 2002.
