Lemon Sole

Lemon Sole
Most young winemakers come from families which have great viticultural tradition, but Pierrick Laroche’s father grew mainly cereals when he was a child. However, his first commercial vintage in 2010 - just 2,300 bottles - received top billing of three stars in France's wine magazine the Guide Hachette. This was a coup for a kid just out of the starting gate. England's MW Rosemary George praised his wines around the same time in 2012 at Chablis's annual post-harvest fair. She wrote: "His first vintage in 2010…. very good… with some firm, fresh minerality." This rare minerality in his Chablis also impressed his experienced peer, Didier Picq. Pierrick Laroche is definitely a name to watch in the coming years.

What to drink with... lemon sole.

This is a delicate flavoured dish on its own, so the best match will be a light, fresh white wine, such as our South African Force Majeure Chenin Blanc or Barton Chenin Blanc. If you’re saucing up your Lemon Sole, then opt for our Chablis or one of our pinks: Domaine de la Jolive, Sancerre Rosé, or Domaine Saint Hilaire Rosé. What if you’re making fish goujons with a herby bread-crumbed crust? We recommend our Grüner Veltliner Heiligenstein, a Sauvignon Blanc: Domaine Beauséjour les Grenettes or our refreshing Villa Sparina Gavi di Gavi. If you’re adding cheese to your goujons, the Chablis might be a better partner.
