Drouhin-Laroze Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru 'au Closeau' 2018
Variety: Pinot Noir
Region: Gevrey-Chambertin - Burgundy
Domaine Drouhin-Laroze was established in 1850 in Gevrey-Chmbertin. The sixth generation is currently at the helm with Nicolas and Caroline working alongside their father Philippe Drouhin to manage a portfolio that includes the Grand Crus Chambertin-Clos de Bèze, Latricières-Chambertin and Chapelle-Chambertin as well as Musigny, Clos de Vougeot and Bonnes Mares. This is in addition to holdings in the Premier Crus of Lavaut St-Jacques, Clos-Prieur, Au Closeau and Craipillot, as well as the Village appellations of Chambolle Musigny, Morey-Saint-Denis and Gevrey-Chambertin.
Sourced from a 0.53Ha Premier Cru parcel, 50% whole bunch and aged in 40% new French oak, the 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 'Au Closeau' 2018 has a wonderful bouquet of red currant, cranberry and light sous-bois aromas, all very focused and nicely detailed.
