2017 Domaine des Hâtes Chablis
One of the exciting producers of the new generation in Chablis, Pierrick Laroche (no relation to Michel Laroche) studied enology in Beaune and interned at New Zealand's famed Villa Maria before returning home and taking over his father's estate. In 2009 he eliminated all pesticides and herbicides and began to work his vineyards and make his wines with minimal intervention. The results speak for themselves, with wines of purity and precision. If you are unfamiliar with Chablis, this is an excellent introduction into the exciting mineral side of unoaked Chardonnay.
