Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, November 2020

    This Premier Cru owes its name to the Prior of the Abbaye de Cluny. The monastery historically owned all the great Gevrey Chambertin vineyards. The high proportion of clay was a major benefit during the drier summer months this year and creates a wine with some brooding power. Wild savoury fruit aromas, with a smattering of mocha and spice. A tightly structured wine, with a firm grip of fruit. Great intensity and lots of staying power.

    The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Prieur 1er Cru has good intensity on the nose of fresh red berry fruit, the oak here nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied, with orange sorbet and Chinese five-spice infusing the black fruit. There is good depth and tension and quite an elegant yet structured finish. This is a fine Clos Prieur, even if it is not the best that I encountered during my Burgundy tastings. Give it 3–5 years in bottle. Drink 2024 - 2038

    Here the pretty and fresh fruit derives more from the red side of the spectrum and is laced with plenty of spice, forest floor and violet whiffs. The sleek, intense and beautifully delineated middle weight flavors possess focused power and a subtle bead of minerality on the balanced, youthfully austere and sneaky long finish. This is also lovely and is pretty much textbook Clos Prieur. Outstanding. Drink 2031+

    Score: 89-92

    More prominent wood frames the liqueur-like aromas of cassis and spice that are also relatively floral in character. The is better density to the slightly sleeker medium-bodied flavors that possess lovely detail on the lightly mineral suffused finish. Drink: 2025+

    Score: 90-93

    30% Whole Bunch Fermentation; 60% new wood. Darker crimson and with a little bit of toast. Perhaps some salted caramel too. Dark red fruit behind with the sweeter finish of the vintage, a little less acidity than some. 3 Star

Producer

Domaine Drouhin Laroze

This substantial Gevrey Chambertin domaine is under the guardianship of a collaborative family team: Philippe Drouhin is ably assisted by son and daughter Nicolas and Caroline. First established in 1850, the domaine has major holdings in Gevrey Chambertin, as well as an impressive array of the Côte de Nuits’s grands crus, stretching from Gevrey down through Chambolle Musginy and into Vougeot. Recent investment at the domaine’s barrel hall will continue to drive quality at Drouhin Laroze. Their style falls somewhere between a modernist and a traditionalist. The wines are ripe, concentrated, and often earthy and textured. They offer terrific value, particularly in Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru.

Region

Gevrey-Chambertin

The greatest village in terms of notable grand cru vineyards, Gevrey Chambertin has no less than 9 of them including its most famous Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze, and includes a premier cru vineyard that many people deem grand cru in quality - Clos St. Jacques. It encompasses approximately 400 hectares under vine also making it the largest top quality vineyard area in the Côte de Nuits. Gevrey-Chambertin has many followers who seek out its deeply coloured, robust and textured wines. They are often firmer than the neighbouring appellations of Chambolle Musigny and Vosne Romanée and can take several years to soften once released. Due to its size and reputation, the list of excellent producers is noteworthy and many are worth seeking out.
