Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2012 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos comes from two parcels toward the bottom of the slope on clay and limestone soils, and this comes only from the old vines. It is raised in 40% oak. It has a very composed, Burgundian bouquet that is reminiscent of a fine Puligny-Montrachet, opening up with subtle almond scents. The palate is well-balanced with a fine line of acidity, good depth but very tight toward the finish that needs a little bit more complexity. Drink now-2020.  (Aug 2014)

Wine Advocate 90 points - Smoky, flinty, nutty, and chalky notes fly almost like smarting sparks from the glass of Laroche’s 2012 Chablis Les Clos (tasted as a pre-assemblage from barrel) and these elements serve for further quickening on a palate marked by crisp, tart-edged apple and bright, zesty lemon. There is chewiness to the density of material and prominent fruit skin phenolics as well as the sort of energetic, almost vibratory finishing intensity - not to mention mineral saturation - that at their best characterize wines from this great site. Hopefully, the present example will become a bit more winsome with time, but in any event I feel pretty confident that it will put on an impressive show through at least 2020. (Aug 2013)
