Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Au Closeau 2017

£53.00

As you would expect from this elegantly styled vintage, this Premier Cru is very much suited to the year. It shows great elegance, bright open fruit with cherries dominating, a fine grained tannin structure and an elegant and fine finish. An excellent wine that will be good for a decade but not much more.

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.
