Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2021

    The name Craipillots is a reference to the stony soils in the vineyard, which surely have an influence on the very mineral nature of this wine. Whilst dark in nature, the fruit has a brightness which Caroline describes as “croquant” or crunchy. There is a feeling of mineral tension and almost saline freshness on the finish.

    Here too there is just enough wood to merit mentioning on the more deeply pitched aromas of poached plum, dark cherry and warm earth. The supple and more refined middle weight flavors don't possess the same depth on the balanced and lingering finish. As is usually the case, this is an elegant Gevrey. Drink: 2027+

    Score: 17.5

    I always feel that this is a more red-fruited and tighter Cru in the DL portfolio, and this means that I am always itching to mark it down, but in 2020 there is decent tenacity and resonance here, and I feel that the depth of flavour will carry it through to a rather luscious conclusion.

  • JAM

    Score: 91-94

    30% whole bunch vinification. Bright medium depth of purple, pleasing fruit, fresher red berry style, nicely balanced. Discreet and understated, which I consider to be strong positives, a little bit of pepper at the finish. Medium bodied and persistent Salivating.

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.
