    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Drouhin Laroze, Clos de Vougeot, Grand Cru, 2011

    Big-framed and intense. Stunning ripe cherry and bramble fruit, structured but not hard, ripe, lovely, corpulent and voluptuous without ever losing its definition, balance or freshness. A brilliant Clos Vougeot. Standout. 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.

    Drink Up
    Neal Martin, Vinous
    The 2018 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has an intense nose of red currant and wild strawberry fruit, plus mint and a touch of graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with more black fruit, quite dense and grippy, with blueberry toward the finish. Quite masculine and rich, it will requite a decade in bottle.

    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.
