  • Neal Martin, January 2019, Score: 91-93

    The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Au Closeau 1er Cru matures with 60% whole bunches and 60% new oak. It is not a monopole but Drouhin-Laroze is the only domaine to release a single bottling from this vineyard that is apparently so precocious that they conducted three green harvests in this vintage. It has a superb bouquet, very vibrant with vivacious red cherries, wild strawberry and mineral scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, very focused and precise with a sculpted, nuanced finish that is pure class. 2022 - 2036

  • Burghound, January 2019, Score: 89-91

    Firm reduction masks the nose. Otherwise there is a bit more volume but at the expense of ceding a bit of refinement on the energetic and nicely detailed flavors though the finish isn't quite as complex or persistent and while I'm sure more will develop with a few years of bottle age, I don't think it will catch the Craipillot. Drink 2025+

This substantial Gevrey Chambertin domaine is under the guardianship of a collaborative family team: parents Christine and Philippe, and children Caroline and Nicolas. They have an embarrassment of riches within their armoury of four 1ers Crus and six exceptional Grands Crus, culminating with plots of both Clos de Bèze and Le Musigny. They also boast one of the finest two storey cellars in the Côte d’Or, built by members of the Prussian military on their way back from the Hundred Years War, with ideal conditions maintaining perfect temperatures for Philippe’s preferred two-year élevage in cask.The wines are ripe, concentrated, and often earthy and textured. They offer terrific value, particularly in Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru.Read less

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.
