Chablis 2015

Chablis AOP

Grapes are supplied by local growers based in reknown Premiers Crus vineyards such as Vosgros, Vaucoupins or Vauligneau. All year round, they work in close relationship with Laroche technical team.


Vinification

Whole bunches are collected in a pneumatic press. Cold settling takes 12 hours at 12 to 15°C in wide tanks to accelerate the process naturally and produce very clear juice. Fermentation at 16°C in stainless steel tanks for 15 days.


Maturation

Ageing of 6 months on fine lees in stainless steel tanks.
Minimum filtration to preserve the natural character of the wine.


Tasting Notes

Eye: Pale colour.

Nose: Youthful, pungent nose with mineral nuance.

Palate: Fresh and harmonious palate with flavours of white fruit and spring blossom.


Food Pairings

Enjoy it as an aperitif or with prawns, japanese food or oysters.


Harvest Notes

If 2015 was an early vintage, we cannot speak about a solar vintage, as was 2006, as it possesses a serious acid vertebral column. The tasting of juices straightaway showed a lot of balance and the delicacy, an impression confirmed after the fermentation where we found precise mouths, without heaviness, and aromatic white flowers. Wines show a beautiful acidity and a concentration which remind those of 2005.
