The king of the Chablis Grands Crus revealed by Domaine Laroche's "savoir-faire", has intense minerality and exceptional finesse. A great wine for great tasting occasions. This vineyard was formerly entirely surrounded with walls, hence the name "Les Clos". We know from historical sources that the Monks of St Martin of Tours abbey planted vines here in the IXth century. Les Clos is located straight in front of the village of Chablis with a Southern exposure. This favourable sunny situation allows grapes to achieve excellent ripeness. The soil is also well drained and grapes are concentrated in both acidity and aroma. Les Clos is the most long-lasting Grand Cru of Domaine Laroche and offers the most intense minerality. Quite restrained at first, this Grand Cru offers finesse, complexity and a superb length.

Wine SpectatorThough creamy in texture, good cut keeps this white racy and focused, setting the stage for lemon, apple, white peach and mineral flavors that stretch out on the long finish. Deftly balanced. Best from 2018 through 2027. 625 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chablis Grand Cru les Clos has a detailed bouquet with flint, smoke and light spicy aromas developing in the glass. The palate is clean and fresh with a fine line of acidity, very fine depth and poise, that spicy tincture becoming more pronounced towards the finish. What I appreciate in this Chablis Les Clos is the harmony, perhaps even more than the Les Blanchots. It just glides along and gently fans out, leaving the customer satisfied and demanding more. This is superb.
