Drouhin-Laroze 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin

Okay – it’s still a Drouhin – but a different one!
2005 Drouhin-Laroze, Gevrey-Chambertin try to find this wine...
Medium-plus cherry-red, still some purple reflections. High-toned black and blue fruit mingles with faint notes of violets – below lies a nice earthy base – lovely. Plenty of forward acidity, but here’s a 2005 that has not yet completely sunk into it’s acidic sleep. Very good fruit, relatively linear but it’s got intensity and length. The tannin is a low-level faint grain and I find no obvious oaky elements. This was a relative bargain and is recommended.
Rebuy – Yes
