Notes

Always one of the more dense and compact Grands Crus of this cellar but the 2016, whilst remaining true to type, has the most wonderfully polished, velvety texture. There is a great sense of balance here, too. A nice mix of red and dark fruit, cherries, sloes and hedgerow berries with an enlivening herb and salt undertow. Fermented to 40% whole bunches.

Drouhin Laroze

Drouhin Laroze

Drouhin-Laroze is a great domaine re-born. Set up in 1919 when Suzanne, the daughter of Jean-Baptiste Laroze, married Alexandre Drouhin. Her father’s Gevrey-Chambertin and her husband’s Chambolle-Musigny estates were united to form Drouhin-Laroze, a domaine that has been exploiting the Côte de Nuits’ best vineyards ever since. After sharing the winemaking with his father in 2000, Philippe Drouhin took full control of the vineyard and winery from the 2001 vintage, beginning the re-incarnation of this great Burgundian domaine. As of ths 2017 vintage Philippe's son and daughter, Caroline and Nicolas, have taken the reins and as a result the domaine looks set to reach even higher levels of quality. Judicious use of whole bunch ferments, depending on the vineyard and vintage, and a more closely managed oak barrel regime designed to reduce oak impact on the wines, are just two noticeable enhancements that have given the wines greater clarity and personality.
