The wines were bottled with minimal filtration andshows aromas of melted butter, preserved lemon and white pepper. Notes of ripe white fruit are balanced by lively acidity on the long and persistent finish.
Wine Advocate 90 points - I find less to get excited about in the 2009 Chablis Les Clos. Like the Blanchots, the Clos is a wine built mostly on fruit rather than structure or minerality. The 40% French oak is very nicely integrated, but the refinement and silkiness typical of the best wines from this site remain elusive. Anticipated maturity: 2012+. (Aug 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
After fermentation in stainless steel, the must was divided into three lots: 25% of the wine was aged on its fine lees in French oak; 25% in new barrels, the remainder in neutral barrels.
