I had heard great things about Domaine Duroche and mid 2013 I arranged a tasting with Pierre Duroche. We looked at the 2011's in bottle and the 2012's in barrel. The 2012's in particular were stunning and we did a deal on the spot to ensure I would have a little of these exceptional wines to offer our clients.
Overnight the domaine has contacted me to advise that the 2012's are ready to ship and that they have received advance notification of some of the scores Tim Atkin MW has given the wines. We won't have the final tasting notes for a few weeks but we do know some of the scores.
The 2012 Charmes-Chambertin has been scored 98 Points
The 2012 Latricieres-Chambertin has been scored 97 Points
The 2012 les Champeaux has been scored 94 Points
The 2012 Aux Etelois has been scored 94 Points
Like the domaine we are over the moon! These are all incredible scores and confirm what amazing advances this domaine has made in recent years. I am delighted to have them in our portfolio.
Background: Domaine Duroche is a small 8.25 hectare estate in Gevrey-Chambertin. The domaine is run by fourth-generation Gilles Duroche with his son Pierre. Their Gevrey Chambertin holdings include three Village wines, three Premier Crus and four Grand Crus.
We have tiny quantities of these highly rated wines so to ensure fair distribution we have made them into mixed dozens.
Each Dozen comprises:
2 bottles Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2012
2 bottles Bourgogne Chardonnay 2011
2 bottles Gevrey-Chambertin 2012
1 bottle Gevrey-Chambertin Champ 2012
1 bottle Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Etelois 2012
1 bottle Gevrey-Chambertin Jeunes Rois 2012
1 bottle Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Champeaux 2012
1 bottle Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2012
1 bottle Latricieres-Chambertin Grand Cru 2012
