1972 Drouhin-Laroze 'Chapelle-Chambertin' Grand Cru
SKU: B182/FRRegular price $349.95
The Domaine's Grands Crus are matured in oak barrels (80% new barrels) made from wood from the Allier and Nivernais regions. We favour light to medium-plus toasts as this ensures the perfect harmony between the wine and wood tannins.
Limpid and brilliant, the Domaine's Chapelle-Chambertin has a woody vanilla nose with a slight floral touch. On the palate, its controlled and subtle tannins ensure elegance, subtlety and a majestic quality and its aromatic subtlety suggests fruit, spices and wood. Its pure features convey plenty of style. The tannins are tender and supple. However, we are brought back to order by its complexity and mineral liveliness on the finish.
