This wine combines elegant acidity and delicate, silky fruit with orchard fruit aromas and a long, lingering salty finish.
Vieille Voye is a seven hectare site, located beneath Premier Cru Les Lys in Vaillons. The current vines were planted in 1902. It is named La Vieille Voye, meaning ancient way, as a Roman way once crossed the site. The remarkable potential of this vineyard led Domaine Laroche to vinify it as a single vineyard wine in 2014. It is of great historical interest for two reasons: firstly, because it was recognised in the early days of the Chablis vineyards as a site of a great quality. The Abbots of Pontigny, who established the original Chablis vineyards, cultivated this plot in the 15th century. Secondly, because Vieille Voye is one of Domaine Laroche's original vineyards. Thanks to its remarkable history and exposure, Domaine Laroche's winemaker Gregory Viennois wanted to capture the exceptional characteristics of this vineyard in a single vineyard wine.
