Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Clos De Vougeot Grand Cru 2015
The Clos Vougeot 2015 is so typical of the vintage with it having great depth of fruit in both the bouquet and on the palate. There is a mix of dark berries and on the palate it is full and generous with good structure. It's a must for any cellar and will repay keeping for a further 5 years (from 2020) when it will last for another couple of decades.

Tab 2The Drouhin-Laroze vines are situated in an area of Clos De Vougeot known as Des Papes, more specifically in the Plante L'Abbé and Quartier De Marei Haut lieux-dits in the most westerly section of the Clos. The produce from this upper third section of the Clos De Vougeot was historically reserved for the Popes in Avignon. Separated by a path, these two vineyard parcels have a total surface area of 1 hectare and were planted in 1976, 1989 and 2007.
