Domaine des Hâtes

Young Pierrick Laroche set up on his own about five years ago but has quickly made a real name for himself. Initially he sold off a large proportion of what he was producing from his 25 hectares (good for cashflow) but now such is the demand for his wines he is being encouraged/forced to bottle much, much more under his own label, which is great news. His wines are aged in mainly stainless steel, although he does use some oak for textural purposes. He likes a long élevage as this adds nuance and complexity without the wines being forced or hurried. As a range they have a lovely mineral core running through them, which keeps them energetic and vivacious. These are top wines and the exciting bit is that the best is yet to come. The 1er Cru Fourchaume is one of the warmer crus in Chablis but the natural richness is nicely offset by the vibrancy that Pierrick generates. He has also added a new 1er Cru, Beauroy, from non estate fruit plus a souped up Straight Chablis called Chatillon which has extra dimension and length.
