Wine Advocate-Parker :
Laroche's 2007 Chablis Les Clos - from a lower and downstream portion of this site, nearest the river - combines overtly, almost adamantly stony character with fresh lime, peach, fig, and hints of lanolin and vanilla from its slightly more than one-third barrel. Another very straight and long-lined expression of this site and vintage, it takes its sense of grip from chalky intensity, citrus zest, and fruit pit bitterness, but incorporates a richness of fruit that serves it well in a seamless and - although highly mineral - sappy and sensually satisfying mouthful. This is a powerful, relentlessly finishing, run-but-you-can-t-hide sort of wine that makes no apologies for the absence of nuance or nooks and crannies. I would anticipate it being worth following for a decade, though de la Bourdonnaye thinks longer.
