A generational change in Burgundy can make an incredible difference. A new combination of tradition and modern know-how can, almost overnight, rocket a domaine to stardom.
Domaine Duroche certainly fit into that category. This tiny producer has just 8.25 hectares of vines, but boy do they have some great vineyards. All that was needed was exceptional care in the vineyard and great winemaking. Now, we have them both and the results are tremendous.
Tim Atkin MW rates the domaine in his Top 25 alongside DRC, Rousseau, Leroy, Georges Roumier and other legends. It is a great achievement.
We have a tiny amout of wine from our 2013 allocation left. Being another tiny vintage the quantities were small to start with and I have decided the best plan is to make the wines available into Packs. Buyers of 2013 will also receive first opportunity to buy 2014 when it comes available. So if you would like to "get on the bandwagon", now would be a great time.
The wines, particularly the Premier Crus, have been extremely well scored by Tim Atkin MW. The Lavaux St-Jacques was scored 96, the Estournelles St-Jacques 95 and Les Champeaux 93 (and Aux Etelois, a lieu-dit, was scored 94!)!
