This tiny Premier Cru is situated just downhill from Mazis-Chambertin. Drouhin-Laroze is the only Domaine to specify the vineyard, so it is rarely seen. The soil is quite deep and rich in clay, and the vines need careful management to restrict and concentrate their yield. A dry year, like 2020, suits this fertile plot, naturally restricting its yield. 30% whole clusters went into the fermentation, and the wine then aged 40% in small, new oak barrels. Colour is garnet-purple of medium depth, aromas being open, ripe and fresh. The palate is full and plump, without heaviness, finishing well-rounded, fresh and appetising (for drinking 2023-2030+).
