2018 Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Au Closeau"

SKU #1550228 93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A concentrated nugget of cherry is bound up in the depths of this red. Features a silky exterior and holds together well, flexing some tannins on the finish. Should come into its own in a few years. (BS) Inner quote mark (9/2017)

89-91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Au Closeau 1er Cru has a wonderful bouquet of red currant, cranberry and light sous-bois aromas, all very focused and nicely detailed. The palate is equipped with fine, supple tannins that render this a pliant Gevrey-Chambertin, although there is some new oak on the finish that needs to be subsumed. At 60%, I can see how a little more prudence might have been preferable. Not bad, but I would like to see how this develops and eats up that new wood. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

91-93pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Planted at the same time as Craipillot, Au Closeau offers a brighter deeper richer purple. This is luxurious but not clumsy, with a little spicy touch, from 50% whole bunch. Works very well here, with a substantial glossy finish. The acidity is not marked but the wine is in balance. Tasted: November 2019."
