91/100 Tim Atkin
Here is an exceptional Premier Cru blockbuster from Burgundy, Domaine Laroche `Les Vaudevey’ 2020. Laroche epitomises Chablis, showing impeccable quality. The wine is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes grown on the Jurassic clay-limestone terroir which defines the tiny Chablis region. Domaine Laroche is one of the most prominent wine producers in Chablis and critics have scored Les Vaudevey as one of the top five Chablis Vau de Vey wines. In fact this wine has received more awards than any other from the region!
It is a bright gold colour, deliciously fresh with plenty of mineral aromas over a layer of white peach. Racy in style, with fine white fruit flavours balanced by zesty freshness , it has a long, lingering mineral finish.’
Drinking beautifully now, this wine is perfect with seafood or on its own, ideal with a buttery Dover sole or a lobster, and any seafood with a creamy sauce, and with cheeses. Another exceptional wine from Domaine Laroche.
