Notes

A wonderful Clos de Vougeot with complex ripe gourmand fruit, notes of bay and juniper and grippy yet silk textured tannins. Impressive concentration and complexity that takes in woody herbal flavours rather than forest notes and a gently saline finish. A structure reminiscent of shoulders clothed in velvet epaulettes, a superb Clos de Vougeot. Philippe Drouhin's parcel of Clos de Vougeot is particularly well situated and it shows in the wine; year in and year out it is consistently one of the best examples there is of this huge Grand Cru.

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.
