Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Au Closeau 2018


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.
