Don't Miss 2015 Burgundy:
2015 Duroché Gevrey-Chambertin "Le Clos" & "Champ"

Posted by Ian McFadden

When you taste Duroché, it's clear that important things are happening at the domaine.

Across the board, Duroché's wines offer a stunning depth of complexity and amazingly clear terroir imprints.

Along with an impressive cast of Grand Crus, Duroché has some great lieu-dit holdings in Gevrey. These present amazing snapshots of just how sensitive the winemaking at Duroché is.

Since Pierre Duroché joined his father at the estate in 2005, quality has skyrocketed. Thankfully, Duroché's prices prove that word still isn't out about the domaine.

The lieu-dit Le Clos offers a textbook expression of Gevrey's earthy minerality, powerful structure and beautiful detail. Duroché's Champ comes from two parcels in northern Gevrey, averaging 40-45 year old vines. Of their lieux-dits, Champ stands out for its refinement, freshness and detailed minerality.

In 2015, both lieux-dits carry their signatures with a special boldness. There's drive, concentration and shocking finesse. I've said this before, but it's at the village level that 2015 really shines. These two lieux-dits Duroché are some of the most impressive 2015 village Burgundies we've tasted to date.

The incredible quality coming out of Duroché and the domaine's relatively low-profile led The Wine Advocate’s Neal Martin to ask, "How the hell have I missed Duroché?" Indeed, these are wines that deserve to be better known. It's hard not imagine the days being numbered before Duroché blows up. Don't miss these.
