Full-bodied whites - CHABLIS, Grand Cru Les Blanchots, Domaine Laroche

2012 CHABLIS, Grand Cru Les Blanchots, Domaine Laroche

Bin: 259
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: Chablis is a cool, northern area. Despite commercial popularity the wines are not 'easy'. Initially they seem light and innocuous, with searing, razor-sharp acidity. Give them air, and allow the palate a minute to adjust, for the subtle intensity and complexity to become evident.
Blanchots is one of the 7 revered Grand Cru vineyards, on a south-facing slope just next to the town, and Laroche own 4.5 hectares of the 12 available.
Grape Variety: 100% Chardonnay, 60% matured steel, the rest in oak, (but just 15% new wood) for 14 months.
Producer: Michel Laroche owns a large, ultra-modern winery. The wines can be austere when young but they age beautifully.
Old Bridge Rating: Classic Grand Cru Chablis - fine balance between classic Chablis minerality and the extra richness of this great site.
