Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Clos De Vougeot Grand Cru 2011
Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Clos De Vougeot Grand Cru 2011 has a composed bouquet of blackcurrant, blueberry and raspberry fruit, a touch of rose petals and smokey, woodland aromas developing close behind. 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.

The château which adjoins the cellars and the winery with its giant presses dating back to the 12th and 14th centuries are built in the Burgundian Renaissance style and are open to visitors. The Confrérie Des Chevaliers Du Tastevin holds its meetings or “chapters” here, and it is no surprise that the finest food and wine in France is found in the area.
From Allen Meadows' Burghound.com:
This wine come from a superbly situated 1 ha parcel of Clos De Vougeot vines, high on the hill. Generous wood fights a bit with otherwise very fresh red berry fruit aromas that evidence an intense earthiness that continues on the equally intense structured and muscular flavours that just ooze a sense of power on the beautifully long and palate coating finish. Really very, very good. Drink 2023+. 91-94 Points
