Notes

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.

Notes
The 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is completely de-stemmed and matures in 80% new oak. It has an expressive and aromatic bouquet with pretty blueberry, raspberry and iodine aromas that burst from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very effervescent from the start with vivid red and black fruit infused with orange zest and light fig notes. Very fine.

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.
