Wine Critic Reviews:

(Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru Red) Moderate reduction makes the nose tricky to read but the rich, full-bodied, intense and extremely powerful flavors possess palate saturating dry extract on the austere and forceful finish. This doesn't have the sleek muscularity and tension of the Bonnes Mares but if anything, there is arguably even better material here crafted in an old school style. Flat out superb and for fans of old school burgs, this is one to consider carefully. (Drink starting 2019).

A very tight nose of black cherry, hawthorn and briary. Good definition. The palate is full-bodied with firm grip, muscular with toasty tannins. Blackberry, raisin, cassis and blueberry vie for attention with a tannic, perhaps “clipped” finish. Noticeable dry extract again, but there is real quality here. This will benefit from some cellaring. Tasted January 2007.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer D.Laroze: Take a moment to remember those times where your emotions were stirred awake in a single fleeting moment - if you focus hard enough, the experience will start to resemble that of drinking Domaine Drouhin-Laroze's finest wines. The estate has survived through thick and thin and emerged seemingly unscathed, ready to take the world by storm again through the power and precision of their delicious wines.The fruits come with a familiar yet stunning intensity that could split arrows. Red fruits are typically slightly more prominent than their black counterparts. Whether you're dealing with orange zest or more exotic secondary aromas, the experience is otherworldly. The purity of the fruit flavors cannot be understated, as it allows the almost crunchy texture to shine even brighter. It's incredibly hard to stop at just one glass, but why would you want to?

Region Burgundy: Situated just west of the beautiful river Saone, the hills and valleys of Burgundy stand as they have stood since medieval times, and you can almost hear the cheerful chatter of vineyard workers from miles away. Indeed, France's identity in the world of wine would be incomplete without the inclusion of Burgundy and its many viticultural achievements. Every little sub-region of the area boasts a unique soil composition, which, when combined with the area's climate conditions, creates an incredibly diverse and appealing selection of fine wines. Every new bottle is an adventure of its own, and a snapshot of its birthplace. You could spend years sampling great Burgundian wines, and you would still have a lot to learn, which is what makes the region so compelling for veterans and novice wine lovers alike. No matter what your taste in wines may be, there is a winery in Burgundy that could mesmerize your mind and make your senses scream with joy. And what better way to spend a comfy summer afternoon with your friends and family than with a classy bottle from some of the region's most reputable wineries? From the noble slopes of Cote d'Or to the flatlands near various settlements, let us help you on your journey as we explore Burgundy's most delicious and renowned wines.
Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy. The grape almost seems like it evolved for this very region, and its essence will stimulate your senses and arouse your imagination. Drink deep and experience almost spiritual enlightenment.
Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
