The Eglise Saint-Pierre, originally built in the 12th century, evokes a sense of force and simplicity through its powerful architecture. Saint-Pierre is the name that Margaux and her family have chosen to grace this selection of their best parcels of Chablis.
The clay-limestone soil typical of this appellation, along with the continental climate of the region, allows the Chardonnay grape to produce this fine, elegant, powerful and sophisticated Chablis.
“MINERAL AND LIVELY, THIS CHABLIS SAINT-PIERRE REPRESENTS THE IDENTITY OF CHABLIS, ALL WITH FINESSE.”
Bernard Neveu, Head Sommelier of Bristol - Restaurant Épicure (3 Michelin stars)

Meet the winemaker!
Although the Laroche family boasts winemaking roots that go back for ages, Domaine d'Henri, founded by Michel Laroche and his children, is actually a relatively new domain. Michel, Cécile and Margaux proudly continue the work of their ancestors (namely Henri, the grandfather) and are developing a magnificent family estate in Chablis.
