Aromas of flint, ripe pear and summer blossoms echo on the palate and merge nicely with pronounced expressions of ripe white fruit.
Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2009 Chablis Les Vaillons wraps around the palate with succulent pears, apricots, light floral honey and mint layered into the generous, rich finish. This inviting, opulent wine is likely to offer its greatest pleasure upon release. The estate typically harvests Vaillons early, as the sugars can mount quickly. Roughly 20-30% of the 2009 Vieilles Vignes was aged in French oak barrels and larger tonneaux, 15% new. Anticipated maturity: 2012+.  (Aug 2012)

Wine Spectator 87 points - This white shows breadth and a waxy component, sporting green apple, green plum and lemon notes. Firm and chalky on the finish. Drink now through 2014. 1,000 cases imported. –BS  (Feb 28 2012)

The Domaine Laroche name is synonymous with Chablis. Since 1850, when Victor Laroche first purchased land in Chablis, five generations of the Laroche family have consistently produced superior Chablis. Victor's great, great grandson Michel Laroche, joined the business in 1967 and has established his family's reputation as one of the top producers in Chablis. Purity and quality are at heart of Michel's winemaking philosophy and as the owner of some of the largest holdings of grand cru vineyards, he is able to produce beautiful wines of finesse and elegance. The vineyards are planted on limestone-rich Kimmeridgian soil (a blend of clay, chalk and fossilized oyster shells) which produce wines that exhibit the precise, crisp minerality that is the signature of all great Chablis. Gregory Viennois is Laroche's technical director and oversees the management of all the family's holdings. His minimalist philosophy emphasizes low yields and encourages the natural ecology of the vines to produce fruit that is true to its terroir.
Technical notes
The wine fermented in French oak (15%) and stainless steel (15%) and then aged for nine months in stainless steel (85%) and French oak barrels (15%) of which 25% was new.
