2014 Domaine Laroche Chablis

SKU #1403326 Jancis Robinson

 Pithy apple fruit and an attractive nutty character. Spot on Chablis style - absolutely typical. (RH)  (1/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2014 Chablis Village has as lively fresh and slightly granitic bouquet. The palate is crisp on the entry, touches of Granny Smith and lime, decent weight in the mouth with a twist of citrus lemon on the finish. Enjoy this over the next 3 to 4 years. (NM)  (8/2015)


 Very pale lemon-yellow color. Aromas of lemon, lime, dusty brown spices, quinine and musky minerality; following the more exotic 2013s, it was immediately clear that this wine was from a different vintage. Juicy, limey and bracing; a classic village Chablis with terrific energy and tautness--and no bitterness. Very pure. I'd wait a year before pulling the cork. (ST)  (8/2015)

Wine & Spirits

 Musky with tropical fruit notes, this has a tannic feel to its leesy intensity. The texture is creamy and rich, making this a bold, juicy chardonnay to chill for roast salmon.  (4/2017)

Wine Enthusiast

 The fruit and acidity of the vintage show strongly with a lively, fresh character that brings out the citrus crispness of this wine. At the back, the wine becomes richer with yellow fruits and a rounded, ripe aftertaste. (RV)  (10/2015)

This Chablis is smooth and rounder in texture, with expressive aromas of ripe apple, citrus and a good core of classic Chablis flint and minerality. Fabulous with roasted vegetables or a simple cheese plate. Drink now.

Additional Information:



- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, M√Ęcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- The region north of the Cote d'Or, famous for its steely dry white wines made from Chardonnay. There are 7 Grands Crus vineyards, and numerous Premier Crus. Unfortunately, the name has been borrowed and badly abused by producers of inferior white wines in the US as well as in Australia. True French Chablis is a delicate, stony, crisp Chardonnay, bearing no resemblance to the anonymous plonk so labeled here.
