Domaine Des Hates Chablis 375ml 2018

The Story of the vineyard
Pierrick Laroche grew up in Maligny, the northernmost village in the Chablis appellation. His father farmed 200 hectares of cereals in the outlying hills, and always maintained a few hectares of vines to sell the production to the reigning co-op, La Chablisienne (an entity that accounts for roughly one quarter of Chablis production). Beginning in 1985, his father applied to the INAO for rights to increase his plantings by about an acre and a half, and did so every year thereafter. In 2006, Pierrick got his degree in enology at Beaune, did an internship at Villa Maria in New Zealand, and returned home to start life as a grower. A few years later, the domain expanded : construction of the cellar and extensions with a covered outside building to receive the grape harvest, installation of performing machinery. In 2008, the two brothers decided to use indigenous yeasts to preserve the naturalness of the wines.

The Winegrower
Pierrick Laroche quit his father’s practice of using herbicides and reduced applications of fungicide to contact and organic products, began plowing his vine rows, and worked on a design for a simple gravity-operated winery. He made his first commercial vintage in 2010—just 2,300 bottles, but they garnered him top billing of three stars in France’s wine magazine the Guide Hachette and many great awards ever since. England’s MW Rosemary George stumbled upon him around the same time in 2012 at Chablis annual post-harvest fair. She wrote: “Pierrick Laroche…has taken his family’s vines out of the cooperative and made his first vintage in 2010. And very good it is, too, with some firm, fresh minerality.”

”Almost all of his villages parcels are in the commune of Maligny, averaging thirty years of age and this cuvée is raised in stainless steel. The 2018 AC offers up a pretty bouquet of lemon,
apple, flinty minerality, dried flowers and a bit of upper register smokiness. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and nicely tensile for a 2018, with a good core, fine flinty soil
signature, lovely focus and grip and a long, complex and zesty finish. This is very good villages. Drink 2020-2035.’ 90 points, John Gilman, View from the Cellar, August 2020.
