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 need careful management to restrict and concentrate their yield. In 2016, the grapes were so healthy that 40% whole bunches were retained for the fermentation. Colour is deep and rich, aromas extremely pretty. Palate shows bright, fruity attack, with rich middle and lovely, mouth-coating aftertaste. We think this is the best Au Closeau we have ever seen in this cellar, and highly recommended it (for drinking 2020-2028+).
