THE WINE

The Puligny-Montrachet of Domaine Chanson is one of the best whites in the whole of Burgundy. After careful and meticulous vinification, it is left to rest for at least 12 months in oak barrels. It has a large aroma clean, embellished with pleasant hints given by the wooden passage. A great quality wine.

THE COMPANY

Domaine Laroche is one of the most prominent wine producers in Chablis, in northern Burgundy. As well as its fine, mineral-laden wines made from the Chardonnay grape variety, the company has interests in regions as far-reaching as the Languedoc, Chile and South Africa.

The domaine was founded in Chablis in 1850 by vineyard worker Jean Victor Laroche. After five generations in the family, Domaine Laroche has come to be one of the largest producers in Chablis. It owns 6 hectares (15 acres) of grand cru vineyards with plots in Les Blanchots, Les Bougros and Les Clos, as well as a further 30ha (73 acres) of premier cru vineyards. Despite these holdings, 70 percent of Laroche's production is actually devoted to village-level Chablis, including its flagship wine Saint Martin. There is also a single Petit Chablis in the Laroche portfolio. In 2014, Domaine Laroche launched a single-vineyard Chablis at the village level from Vieille Voye. This is an uncommon practice as the vast majority of village Burgundy is blended from multiple sites.

Michel Laroche has recently led an expansion of the family name into new regions. An estate in the Languedoc named Mas La Chevalièr offers regional varieties not found in Burgundy, including Syrah, Grenache, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. In 2002, Laroche ventured into Chile with the property Viña Punto Alto which produces under the Viña Laroche label. Fruit comes from the Casablanca, Maipoand Colchagua valleys and includes Carménère, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. In the same year, Laroche also purchased the L'Avener winery in South Africa.

In the early 2000s, Domaine Laroche became the first Burgundy estate to adopt screw caps for its entire range, including all of the grand and premier cru wines. In 2009, the company merged with Languedoc negociant Jeanjean to become Advini. Along with Domaine Laroche and its new world ventures, Advini owns wineries all over the south of France, as well as in Bordeaux and the southern Rhone Valley.
