2014 Mineral Driven Chablis; A Visit With Margaux Laroche of Le Domaine d’Henri($15)
Friday, July 21st, 2017 4 pm – 7:30 pm @ Mt Tabor Fine Wines
A great way to taste different bottlings of the same Premier Cru!
The first time I tasted the wines of Le Domaine d’Henri it was a “who are these guys?!” moment. Chablis is a personal fave of mine and I do a lot of study on the wines and winemakers of the region and I had never heard of this Domaine. I was told this was an estate run by the children of Michel Laroche. Ok, I’m very aware of Domaine Laroche (major player). The winery was sold to a large firm not long ago as Michel wanted to re- invest in the much smaller estate that was in his fathers family. A much calmer, serene life and a chance to invest in his children and his family’s future. The highest quality wines are almost always made in small quantities and Domaine Laroche was anything but that.
I think it’s a beautiful story and one which gives me great respect for the decision.
So don’t forget, it’s your obligation as an American to come, taste and let the lovely Margaux know how proud we are of President Emmanuel Macron!!!!!!
