Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, January 2014

    This famous Grand Cru can so often be incredibly variable, but this example from Drouhin Laroze, with its superbly positioned vines within the Clos, is quite sensational. Succulent, rich and full of bright berry fruits, this has a superb feeling of density, with its tightly packed flavours, rounded tannins and beautifully long, complex finish. High class indeed.

    Score: 93-95

    The 2012 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru has a very fragrant bouquet with scents of blueberry, blackcurrant pastilles and dried rose petals - all very well delineated. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, grainy tannins, good depth and great precision towards the finish. This is one of the domaine's best wines this year - real class.

    Score: 92-94

    This is more expressive than it usually is at this point in its development with a broad-ranging nose of red currant, pungent earth, soft wood spice and hints of underbrush. There is a lovely vibrancy to the rich, caressing and restrained large-scaled flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration and strikingly good persistence on the youthfully austere finish. Good stuff in 2012 but even more structured than usual so patience will be required. Drink 2027+

    Score: 17.5

    Juicy and sweet fruit; pleasantly punchy tannins. This has the gutsiness that their Chapelle-Chambertin seems to lack. Real leathery, savoury power on the finish. Drink 2018-2034

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.
