Domaine Drouhin-Laroze

Domaine Drouhin-Laroze

With house and cellars on a large leafy plot within Gevrey-Chambertin, the somewhat grand Drouhin-Laroze estate has 11.5 ha of vines. Pride and joy is a wonderfully large 1.5 ha holding of Clos de Bèze which was reputedly bought on a whim one morning by grandmère Drouhin whilst she was walking the dog! 

An old alembic still and a huge dog often provide a welcome at the cellar door before the descent into one cavernous cellar then down into another. Rare in being of exactly the same dimensions, these cellars were the work of Prussian soldiers in 1815 after the Battle of Waterloo. The family has been here since 1850 when Jean-Baptiste Laroze started a vineyard operation in Gevrey-Chambertin. He was succeeded by Felix Laroze whose daughter Suzanne married an Alexandre Drouhin in 1919, the estate then becoming known as Drouhin-Laroze. It is now run by Philippe and Christine Drouhin along with their children, Caroline and Nicolas, who represent the sixth generation. Caroline runs the mini-négoçiant side of the business, buying in grapes for the Laroze (the Rose) de Drouhin labelled wines. For both sides of the business, they employ a rigorous selection of grapes during several pickings in the vineyard and on the sorting table, making as a result some very noteworthy wines.
