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 AdvocateThe 2016 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos from Domaine Laroche plays its cards very close to its vest, only unwinding with extended aeration to reveal a pretty bouquet of crisp white peach, lemon oil and citrus blossom. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, glossy and delicately textural, with a deep, stony core and vibrant acids, concluding with a stony, almost saline finish. This is a Les Clos that's going to insist on several years' patience, but it's pure, discreetly concentrated and well-balanced, so I wouldn't bet against it.

Wine SpectatorLemony and lilting, this white offers green plum, apple, honey and mineral flavors. Sleek and focused on the finish. Drink now through 2023.
