About Pierrick Laroche
A rising star in Chablis, Pierrick Laroche released his first wines from the 2010 vintage to great acclaim.
He has 33 ha under vines across seven Villages vineyards in Chablis, including multiple 1er Cru vineyards, and a single Grand Cru vineyard (Bougros).
A 2nd-generation winemaker, Pierrick took over the family estate, Domaine des Hates, which was established by his father in 1970.
All movement in the winery is via gravity, and while the majority of wines are vinified in tank, he does utilise small amounts of oak for his Cru wines.
