Domaine Laroche : Chablis Grand cru "Les Blanchots" 2008

Burgundy - Chablis - White - 13° Domaine Laroche Domaine Laroche 2008 E301/08
  • Parker : 91
Wine Advocate-Parker :
A Sauvignon-like aura including citrus and herb aromas and a lemony, saline, white pepper- and nettle-infused palate impression - both graced by a hint of Maine blueberry - lend the 2008 Chablis Blanchots a vivacity and cut unusual in a barrel-aged grand cru, yet at the same time there is a faintly oily, rich texture here and a fine sense of underlying density as with nearly all of the wines in the present Laroche collection. This finishes with impressive persistence and a fine combination of richness with lift and sheer refreshment. I would expect it to be worth following for at least 6-8 years, although de la Bourdonnaye and Laroche are convinced such an estimate is ludicrously low - and I hope they're the ones proved correct!
