Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2012 Chablis Grand Cru Les Blanchots, which comes from 4.56 hectares of vine, has a more Burgundian bouquet furnished with almond and hazelnut infusing the slightly reduced nose. The palate is well-balanced with a gras-like entry, very good concentration here with good depth and intensity on the finish. Very fine. Drink 2015-2025. (Aug 2014)

The name Domaine Laroche is virtually synonymous with Chablis. With a history that dates back to 1850, when Victor Laroche purchased his first parcel of land in Chablis, the Laroche family has been dedicated to producing top-quality wines from the region for five generations. Michel Laroche, the great-great-grandson of Victor, joined the family business in 1967, and today remains at the helm. Under his stewardship, Laroche has become one of the most respected producers in Chablis and is one of its largest landholders of grand cru vineyards. Purity and quality are the heart of Michel’s winemaking philosophy as exhibited by the wines produced at Domaine Laroche.
