This tiny Premier Cru is situated just downhill from Mazis-Chambertin. Drouhin-Laroze is the only domaine to make a wine specifically from this appellation, hence it is very rarely seen. The soil is quite deep and rich in clay, and the vines are carefully managed to restrict and concentrate their yield. Colour is medium-deep, red-purple, aromas being open, rich and complex. This is full-bodied, with impressive middle-palate, good freshness and gentle tannins. Its creamy texture and vibrant fruit are striking (for drinking 2021-2029+).
