Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Au Closeau 2016


Unusually for this vineyard, the wine shows greater depth than normal. It is still elegant and pure but with a more profound depth of fruit than you would anticipate with aromas of black cherry and blueberry dominating.It is quite savoury in the finish with a decent length of aftertaste.

Drouhin-Laroze's parcel of vines in the Au Closeau vineyard was planted in 1943 and measures 0.44ha, or 80% of the total surface area - almost a monopoly for the Domaine. Au Closeau is located at the southern end of Gevrey-Chambertin, across from Mazis-Chambertin. The name derives from "Clou", which, in Burgundy is synonymous with "Clos” and is a reminder that this vineyard was once enclosed by a wall.
