"Superb" - 2018 Duroché Gevrey-Chambertin "Champ"

Posted by Ian McFadden

"Pierre Duroché has become an overnight superstar" - Neal Martin

When it comes to purity of expression and coaxing an intricate and subtle complexity from Gevrey, it's clear that Duroché has the touch.

From Villages to Grand Cru, Duroché's entire lineup is seriously impressive. With that said, we find the lieu-dits bottlings particularly exciting. They make abundantly clear the precision and attention to detail that's in play at this domaine.

Today, we're happy to offer Duroché's 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin "Champ" for $75.95. 

Champ comes from northern Gevrey from a site averaging 40-45 year old vines. Champ's signature is refinement, freshness, and detailed minerality.

This is a site that thrived in 2018. The delicacy of the wine is shocking. In this warm vintage, Duroché was somehow able to make wines with bright aromatics, beautiful delineation, and a stern mineral core. 

The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin "Champ" makes very clear why Duroché is one of the most exciting Burgundian winemakers. There's a clarity of expression and exacting detail that really sets it apart.

Neal Martin, Vinous Media: "The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Champ shows a little more amplitude than the regular Gevrey Village. Perfumed wilted rose petal scents and crushed stone infuse the transparent red fruit on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with a crunchy opening. A brittle-boned Gevrey (and I write that in a positive sense) with a stony, mineral-driven finish. Great persistence here. Superb."
