Le Domaine d'Henri

Ancestors of the Laroche family owned vines in Chablis as long ago as 1695. Today, with Michel Laroche as patriarch, they are among the most respect winemaking dynasties in all France. Michel has steered a wise yet bold path since his first vintage in 1967. In 2010, he sold the family’s stake in Domaine Laroche, in order to establish a new, smaller, quality-oriented domaine, which he would name after his father, Henri. The winery at Domaine d’Henri may have been constructed from scratch, but a significant proportion of the domaine’s holdings is venerable. Of particular note are the eighty-year-old vines in the 1er Cru Fourchaume vineyard, which produce the cuvée known as Héritage.

Lutte raisonnée is the chosen ethos in the vineyard, while the objective in the winery is to allow each different terroir to express itself. Each parcel is therefore vinified separately, using only natural yeast. 10 and 35% of any given wine is aged in barrels depending on the vintage and cuvée – just the right amount to highlight, rather than mask, the startling purity of the domaine’s wines.
