Located in the north-west sector of Chablis in the village of Maligny, Pierrick Laroche now runs this family estate which was established by his father in the 1970s. His father gradually gained planting rights and slowly added to the family vineyard holdings over time. Today the current size of the estate is around 25 hectares. In 2010 Pierrick produced his first vintage to great acclaim (his father had previously sold the grapes to La Chablisienne).

The domain farms 1.1 ha in this subsection of Fourchaume which is located towards the northern part of Fourchaume, a top Premier Cru vineyard noted for growing on similar contours as the Grand Crus above the right bank of the Serein. Pierrick's vines average 25 years with some up to 35 years old. Vinified with indigenous yeast with a very long slow alcoholic fermentation of 2-3 months. The wine is aged in stainless steel for 60% and in aged barrels for 40% with bottling in spring for a total elevage of 18 months giving a wine of excellent complexity and depth.

Tank sample – ‘brut’: A mix of tank and barrel – 60% tank, a bit younger wood used for this cuvée. This is a very open and airy nose – a faint spice but it’s more about the florals today. Ooh – that’s so mineral and vibrantly flavoured – practically dynamic – but there’s a bit of gas in this that helps that impression. But this is directly a great wine – a notch above the Butteaux today – love it! - Bill Nanson,, February 2022
