Domaine de la Meulière
Domaine de la Meulière is a 24 hectare estate in the small village of Fleys, 4km from Chablis. The Laroche family have been producing Chablis since 1780.
Vincent and Nicolas Laroche are the eighth and ninth generation of winemakers and have introduced new winemaking techniques and a more moderated approach in the vineyard.
The domaine uses natural control mechanisms to reduce the yields and organic fertiliser made according to petiole analysis.
In the winery they utilise the traditional methods used at the end of the 19th century combined with new equipment and new disciplines to showcase the character and terroir of the wine.
Chablis is renown for its Kimmeridgian clay-limestone hillsides which, when paired with sloping southerly exposures and exceptional sunlight hours, produce wines of greatcomplexity and longevity.
