Grape Variety: 100% Chardonnay
Growing Region: Chablis, France
Owner: Michel Laroche

Over the coming summer months, where you find yourself enjoying shellfish, seafood cuisine or a summer salad - I encourage you to open a Chablis and have your taste buds refreshed by the clean, crisp characters of this elegant wine.
The grapes are sourced from up to 40 local grape growers who have a long term relationship with Domaine Laroche. They work closely the whole year with the Laroche technical team. 

 

According to a tradition in Chablis, the grapes are crushed and pressed on the property of origin. The whole bunches were pressed for 12 hours settling at 12 to 15°C in specially designed wide tanks that accelerate the natural settling process and produce very clear juice. Then 15 days of fermentation at 16°C in stainless steel tanks, with 6 months resting on fine lees - and then finally minimal filtration to preserve the natural lifted characters of the wine.
In the glass you have a pale gold colour. The nose is youthful and bright with citrus and mineral nuances. On the palate this wine is vibrant with a harmonious palate full of flavours of apple, pear and a hint of spring blossom. A bright fresh Chablis, tinged with mineral notes, restrained, lean and elegant, the acidity is refreshing, with a smooth, round palate and lingering flavours of white honey, crisp apple and citrus notes on the finish. Gently chill and serve at 8-10°C.

A bright and lively summer wine.
