Delicious once opened — 5 months ago
The 2017 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru has quite a "bullish" nose with blackberry, wild hedgerow, clove and autumn leaf aromas that stride out of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh line of acidity, touches of orange rind tincturing the red berry fruit. This gently builds in the mouth to a fairly intense red berry, autumn leaf and tobacco tinged finish that lingers for 45 seconds. Excellent. (Neal Martin, Vinous, November 2018) — a year ago
Metallic, sweet spices, dried cranberry and strawberries, sweet and cool. Has plenty depth and sappiness for the plot and vintage. Very Duroche/Fourrier like. — 2 years ago
Kasanoff 5/17 — 4 months ago
From magnum. Had it next to the stylistically similar Fourrier Gevrey VV, but this was the better wine for me - it had a little more depth and texture. Started of similarly reductive, but quickly opened up to scents of roses, intense red cherry, and smoky insence. The palate's velvety, mix of red and dark fruits, rich but offers lots of freshness with its crisp acidity. Minerality plays second fiddle at the moment, but is evident in the long spicy finish. I bet this was how it looked like when it was first bottled, so time can only make it better. 1er level for sure!
NB: From WH - This plot is located on the southern side of Griotte-Chambertin alongside the Claude Dugat plot and below the Duroché plot of Griottes-Chambertin. It is quite strange that this vineyard has been classified as village as it’s located so close to the Grand Crus. — a year ago
It's been a while since I last used Delectable mainly because I haven't been drinking much (thanks for the kind reminder @Delectable Wine). The whole COVID situation has made it a whole lot harder to find good wines, especially in my hometown. Fortunately, we stumbled upon a list at a restaurant whose owner happens to be an avid wine lover too. While we definitely had to pay a premium for this bottle, it was so good to finally drink a well-stored red in the tropics, and a favourite producer at that.
Typical Duroche elegance, marked with distinct village characters and the vintage's fruity exuberance. The nose is ripe and generous, with fresh black cherries, crushed strawberries, pretty lavender charm, and a touch of earth. A whiff of volatile acidity seems to lift the fruit here. The palate follows with plush and supple texture, darker fruits taking centre stage, some warm spices, and a snappy finish. Expected a little more mineral crunch and a redder fruit profile, but this was still so easy to drink. Transparent and pure. Definitely qualifies as a red kabi. — 5 months ago
Great for village wine. Intense with fine tannin. Vibrant with decent finish. — 2 years ago
