Drouhin-Laroze 2016 Premier Crus. Serious Scores!

Drouhin-Laroze 1er Crus Header 2
Four 1er Crus from the wonderful 2016 vintage. Very limited stocks
 
Been thinking about the 2016 vintage? Time is quickly running out!

The small yields have meant quantities available are much smaller than usual and in combination with excellent reviews the wines have been selling extremely well.

Domaine Drouhin-Laroze continues its climb under the new generation. Numerous critics have described their 2016's as the best ever.

We have small quantities of 3 Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Crus still available. All are available at a 15% Pre Arrival Discount.

Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Prieur 2016
Landed Price $188.50
Pre Arrival Price $159.95
20 bottles left
Drouhin-Laroze Clos Prieur Label Located below Mazis-Chambertin and some say with similar characteristics. 
Tim Atkin MW: 
The 40% new oak is slightly more marked on this wine than on the other Premiers Crus from the domaine. But it's a serious, well-structured wine that has the texture and concentration to assimilate it. Black fruits, wood smoke and fine-grained tannins are well married on the palate. 2026-36. 94 Points
Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Craipillot 2016
Landed Price $188.50
Pre Arrival Price $159.95
24 bottles left

Drouhin-Laroze Craipillot Label Located down the hill from the St-Jacques vineyards. Seldom seen.

Tim Atkin MW: 
The Drouhins have two parcels in this Premier Cru, located next to each other with some cooling influence from the Combe de Lavaux. This is an appropriately racy Gevrey with spicy blackberry fruit, well handled 40% new oak, supple tannins and refreshing palate length. 2022-31. 94 Points
Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Au Closeau 2016
Landed Price $145.00
Pre Arrival Price $123.25
24 bottles left
Drouhin-Laroze Closeau label A tiny premier Cru of just 0.53 hectares. Drouhin-Laroze own most of the cru and are the only domaine to bottle it.

Tim Atkin MW: This near monopoly vineyard is located just below Mazis-Chambertin and often makes wines with considerable colour and concentration. It's quite a powerful wine, with whole bunches adding some spice and texture. Sweet, plush and savoury, with crunchy plum and black cherry flavours. 2024-36. 
94 Points.

Denis Pere Paulands Mood
Domaine Denis Pere et Fils Corton Les Paulands Grand Cru 2015
$137.95 a Bottle!

Domaine Denis Père et Fils is a family business located in Pernand-Vergelesses, a picturesque town located in the Côte de Beaune. The property includes 13.5 hectares of vineyard holdings which encompass the terrains of Pernand-Vergelesses, Savigny-Les-Beaune, Aloxe-Corton and Chorey-Les-Beaune.
 
Just like his father and grandfather before him, Raoul Denis began a career as a vigneron of the prestigious Hospices de Beaune in 1940. Yet Raoul also had aspirations to work on the small 2 hectare family property and nurture it into what he believed it had the potential to be. So, together with his wife Raymonde, Raoul began fulfilling a long-time dream. By 1972, Denise and Raymonde had established Denis Père et fils with the help of their eldest son Roland and his wife Annick. With a passion and dedication to their craft, and the acquisitions in the Ile des Vergelesses appellation, their vineyards grew bigger and richer. In 1982, when the Denis family acquired prominent parcels in Corton Charlemagne and Aloxe Corton as well as other new vineyards, they were soon selling over 10 hectares of various wines. Ten years later, in 1992, Raoul passed the torch to his youngest son Christophe and the tradition, and the dream, continued successfully.

Today we present their Corton Les Paulands Grand Cru 2015. Les Paulands lies below Les Bressandes on the Hill of Corton. It is only 1.05 hectares in size and much of it belongs to Comte Senard.
 
I don't have a tasting note for the wine but I was so impressed by the price that I snapped up the 24 bottles I was offered.

Landed Price $183.95
Special Pre Arrival Price $137.95

This has to be the best value Grand Cru Red available from 2015!
