Craftsmanship for terroir
Domaine Laroche employs more than 30 people all year round, each responsible for a given plot over the 90 hectares of vineyards.
The approach of viticulture is based on observation. The core aim is to get small concentrated bunches with berries able to reveal the terroir in the glass. No need to say that there is no useful general rule: each plot has its own character, sometimes in contrast with the next one. Attention to detail for all these nuances make the difference in the wines.
Laroche can adapt the viticultural practice to each growth or plot characteristic that can give wine structure, finesse and minerality.
All premier and grand crus are harvested by hand and sorted in the winery, in order to keep the potential of the grapes at its best and make terroir expression possible.
The ageing of premiers and grands crus takes place in the cellars of the Obédiencerie.
With each of its partner vinegrower, Laroche builds long-term relationship. Working close to them enables grape quality at harvest time.
