2016 Drouhin Laroze Clos Vougeot Grand cru

2016 Drouhin Laroze Clos Vougeot Grand cru


With 25-30% frost losses, 40% whole cluster. From their terrific holdings in Des Papes, Quartier de Marei Haut, and Plante L’Abbé, this is a classically implosive mineral austere reference point example in every vintage of my tenure, with this year being no exception. Black hole deeeeep aromatically, then classically implosive and midweight. “Fuckin’ great”. A little * awarded here.
“(from a superbly situated 1 ha parcel high on the hill). An overtly floral nose enjoys added breadth in the form of earthy black cherry and currant aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. Like the Bonnes Mares and Chapelle, the medium weight plus flavors are seductive while displaying excellent intensity on the driving finish that flashes the hallmark austerity of a young Clos de Vougeot. This promising effort will require at least some restraint. (92-94)/2028+” Allan Meadows
