Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Clos De Vougeot Grand Cru 2016


Frost was a problem for this vintage but nevertheless this is a good wine where the harvest, low in quantity, was handled well. Black cherries and blackcurrants leap from the glass and on the palate it is chunky and mouth-filling. The aftertaste is good but perhaps a little short for a Grand Cru.

Tab 2

The 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.
