One of France’s finest producers, Domaine Laroche is deeply rooted in the history of Chablis and is one of its largest holders of Grand Cru vineyards.
Headquartered at the beautiful Obédiencerie de Chablis, a former ninth century monastery where the monks of Saint Martin of Tours made wine, Domaine Laroche dates to the mid-19th century when Victor Laroche purchased his first parcel of land in Chablis. Today, Domaine Laroche owns a total of nearly 100 hectares in the appellation and is managed by a talented team dedicated to caring for the land to encourage the purest expression of Chablis. Many of the domaine’s vineyards are over 60 years old and are situated amongst the best crus. Sustainable viticulture is practiced throughout, with no artificial pesticides or herbicides used.
Purity and quality are at the heart of winemaker Gregory Viennois’s winemaking philosophy. His approach to production is meticulous yet minimalist in style, resulting in dynamic wines that showcase the unique character of each individual vineyard site. Domaine Laroche ages its Premiers and Grands Crus in the historical cellars of the Obédiencerie de Chablis, as the monks did 1,000 years ago.
