Appellation: Chablis Premier Cru
Estate: The wine making origins of the Laroche family can be traced back through several generations. Delving deep into the family history, we have found ancestors, born in 1695, who owned vines. The very first “vigneron” in the family was Louis Laroche, born in 1781...
The Chablis vineyards lie on the Kimmeridgian stratum of clay-limestone soils. The combination of these soils and Chablis' continental climate result in a uniquely mineral, chalky expression of the Chardonnay grape.
The continental climate of Chablis results in bitterly cold winters and summers that are generally dry and warm, but not excessively hot, which helps preserve the fresh aromas of the Chardonnay grape grown here.
