Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, November 2018

    Deep purple colour. This has a striking fruit compote of flavours and balances the sweetness of fruit with an attractive line of freshness flowing through the palate. A very layered wine with excellent texture from this relatively unknown premier cru.

    Score: 90-92

    The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Crapiots 1er Cru matures in 60% new oak with 25% whole bunches. It has a well-defined and focused bouquet with ample red cherries mixed with blueberry and light floral notes. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, quite citrus-fresh with fine delineation towards the minerally finish. Good potential, though it will require four to five years in bottle. 2023 - 2038

    Score: 89-92

    Reduction dominates the underlying fruit today. More interesting are the highly energetic, fresh and intense middle weight flavors that aren't as dense as those of the Chambolle but they are attractively sleek thanks to the relatively fine grained tannins shaping the saline-inflected finish. This is really quite pretty if not especially deep though my projected range assumes that the mid-palate and finish will flesh out with a few years of cellaring. Drink 2025+

Producer

Domaine Drouhin Laroze

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.

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.
