An expert's opinion

Here's the 2015 vintage of this exceptional Chablis, producing Chardonnay in a pure, honest style without any frills. Benjamin Laroche believes that there isn't a single Chablis, but that every parcel of land has its own personality, such as the Forêts vineyard, elevated to Premier Cru status. A lovely blend of freshness, purity of fruit and precise acidity.

Jean-Michel Deluc. Head Sommelier of Petit Ballon.
The estate

La Manufacture

Benjamin Laroche is from the Chablis region; his family have been working this land since 1663 and founded an estate which has been hailed as one of the darlings of the appellation since 1850. A vineyard worker as a young man, he later worked as a sales executive for several estates, giving him the chance to travel all over France learning about the needs and expectations of the most demanding wine lovers.
