Philippe Drouhin's grandparents were wise. Despite hard times in the wine business they made sure to invest in prime land on the Côte de Nuits. Thanks to them, 42 per cent of today's Domaine Drouhin-Laroze is grand cru vineyards, from Chambertin Clos de Bèze to Clos de Vougeot.

The beginnings of Domaine Drouhin-Laroze date back to 1850 when Jean-Baptiste Laroze purchased the first vines in Gevrey-Chambertin. In 1919 Suzanne, his granddaughter married Alexandre Drouhin who owned vines in Chambolle-Musigny and the Domaine Drouhin-Laroze was created.
Today, the sixth generation is in charge of 11.5 hectares of vines spread across some prestigious sites in the Cote de Nuits including the Grand Crus Chambertin Clos de Beze, Bonnes-Mares, Clos Vougeot, Latriceres-Chambertin and Chapelle-Chambertin. There are also some very handy Premier Crus from Gevrey-Chambertin.
My favourite wine at Drouhin-Laroze is invariably the Latricieres-Chambertin. The domaine owns 0.67 hectare from which they craft a classic example - light on its feet with fine aromatics and a silky palate.
Our 2014's have arrived and we have 22 bottles available. For the next week we offer the wine at what was our Pre Arrival Price - $245.95.

Drouhin-Laroze Latricieres Tim Atkin MW: The change of generation in 2014 has resulted in a shift in style at this domaine, xith less evident extracton in the wines. This is a very attractive, perfumed Latricières with subtle, refined oak, spicy, succulent, red berry flavours, a lick of chalk and a lingering finish. 2019-25.

Wine Advocate - Neal Martin: 
The 2014 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru has an attractive nose: more vibrant and nuanced than the Chapelle-Chambertin with more mineralité filtering through those lifted black and red fruit. The palate is crisp and tensile with fine tannin, juicy black fruit with just a touch of citrus lemon towards the finish. Yes, there is a bit of new oak to be assimilated (60%) but once it does, this will be a very fine Latricières that exudes class and a nascent sense of energy. 92-94 Points
