“I found Pierrick’s wines to be slow-burners – wines that just got better and better in the glass. All are excellent if you wait for the oak of some cuvées to fade, but the finishes were often simply great – that bodes well for the wines – they could turn out even better than I noted.” — Bill Nanson, Burgundy Report, January 2021.
Located in the north-west sector of Chablis in the village of Maligny, Pierrick Laroche now runs this family estate which was established by his father in the 1970s. His father gradually gained planting rights and slowly added to the family vineyard holdings over time. Today the current size of the estate is around 25 hectares. In 2010 Pierrick produced his first vintage to great acclaim (his father had previously sold the grapes to La Chablisienne).
Pierrick has a degree in oenology from Beaune and after graduating he travelled the world, doing various internships to gain experience before returning home to start making wine and take over the family vineyards for himself.
