PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Michel Laroche made his mark in the winemaking world by taking over the reins at his family estate in Chablis, but he did not want to be limited to the confines of Burgundy. He yearned to spread his wings and craft wine in another region; his wanderlust led him to the vast and viticulturally bountiful region of Languedoc in the 1980s, where the winemaking history was long but the high quality was scarce.

Immediately seeing Languedoc’s vast potential, Michel purchased land and established a winery near the commune of Béziers near the Mediterranean Sea. Here, the high altitude and cooling ocean breezes brought forth terrific wines made from cool-climate varietals Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Laroche developed relationships with grape farmers throughout the region and helped to transform Languedoc into a serious destination for high-quality well-priced wines - the stuff of which our dreams are made of! 

The Pinot Noir grapes for today’s wine came from the Cévennes foothills in the Northern Gard region, a maze of steep slopes and winding rivers; and from Limoux, in the hills south of Carcassonne in the western Languedoc, where maritime influences cool the grapes and allow them to develop balancing acidity. The soils are varied, with clay and limestone predominant. 2018 was an excellent vintage characterized by springtime rains followed by abundant summertime sunshine.

Made from 100% Pinot Noir fermented and aged in stainless steel, the 2018 Laroche La Chevaliere is medium-bodied and abounds with aromas and flavors of raspberries and strawberries, with very subtle hints of wet stone and savory herbs. Soft tannins and moderate acidity, along with the wine’s generous fruit profile, make it immensely gluggable.
