The 2020 Domaine Laroche Les Vaudevey is another exquisite wine which embodies the elegance and complexity for which Chablis is celebrated—it is highly recommended by the Club Tasting Panel (particularly at this superb best price!).

This delicious wine has received high praise from the critics. Notes Jasper Morris, ‘An intense, focused white, with crushed stone and chalk dust framing green apple, lemon and greengage flavors. Balanced and long, with a steely finish. Drink now through 2028.’ Wine Spectator adds: ‘Nice density and concentration on the palate, with green apple acidity underneath.’ Notes Wine Enthusiast’s Roger Voss: ‘Ripe yellow fruit and light spice flavours. Juiciness comes with the citrus tang, allied to a touch of toast and final tight, textured aftertaste. Drink from 2022.’

Decanter names the 2020 vintage in Chablis ‘a very fine vintage’, continuing, ‘Although very early, the dry weather and absence of heat spikes meant that grape quality and health was exceptional. Yields were slightly impacted by the dry weather, but this only appears to have added to the vitality of the wines. Demand for Chablis is high and buyers should undoubtedly take the opportunity to stock up on 2020 and enjoy it over the next decade, as the wines represent fantastic value compared to many wines from the Cote d’Or.’

It is especially well priced through the Club!

Six bottles. RRP £300. CCUK £219 including UK mainland delivery.
