Tasting Note:

Perhaps less slick than the Bonnes-Mares but it makes up for this with incredible energy, density and depth. Mouth-filling dark berry fruit with some bite to it and a energising herbal touch. Loads of force and life here. A whirlwind of fruit that blasts the senses and leave them well and truly awakened. Drouhin-Larozes’s parcel of Clos de Vougeot is particularly well situated and it shows in the wine; Their 1ha of vines is spread over two lieux dits in the northwestern corner of the vineyard, “Plante l’Abbé” and “Quartier de Marei Haut”, in the sector called “des Papes” - owing to the fact the produce from this sector was reserved for the Popes of Avignon. Fermented with 40% whole bunches.
