2021 Pierrick Laroche ‘Domain des Hates’ Chablis


Region: Burgundy, France

Viticulture: Sustainable

Winemaker: Pierrick Laroche

Winery Established Date: 2009

Gravity fed winery over many levels. Malolactic fermentation of all the wines in stainless steel and ageing in stainless steel for all but a small percentage of 1er + Grand Cru wines in barrel which is blended with the tank portion before bottlin

Sommeliers Recommendation:

Classic clean style Chablis showcasing high quality fruit with hand-off winemaking. Clean and crisp but with good weight and structure. Great for any seafood dishes.

Located in the north-west sector of Chablis in the village of Maligny, Pierrick Laroche now runs this family estate which was established by his father in the 1970s. His father gradually gained planting rights and slowly added to the family vineyard holdings over time. Today the current size of the estate is around 25 hectares. In 2010 Pierrick produced his first vintage to great acclaim (his father had previously sold the grapes to La Chablisienne). The cellars are built into the side of a hill in the village enabling much of the work to be done by gravity. His oldest plot of vines is Les Châtillons, which was planted in early 1970s and is located just behind the hill of Grand Crus. This cuvée also has a small portion of barrel ageing, employed to great effect.
