Domaine Duroché, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Lavaut-Saint-Jacques"

The Duroché family has been producing wine under their own label since 1933, and they’ve been farmers and grape growers for much longer, but it wasn’t until fifth generation winemaker Pierre Duroché took the helm in 2005 that the slightly rustic, old school charm of this estate begin to transform into something truly exceptional. Fast forward 15 years and Pierre is considered one of the preeminent rising stars in Gevrey-Chambertin, and Burgundy writ large. But he didn’t make his mark by boosting his wines with richness and oak, instead he took the family's understated style to new levels of elegance, complexity, and terroir transparency. The 2021 vintage plays perfectly into Pierre’s style, and these are some of the most graceful and pure Gevrey wines out there, and given the attention and rave reviews he receives from the press, they still offer excellent value. This is the perfect opportunity to get in before Duroché becomes another impossible to find Red Burgundy.

This is one of the very top Premier Crus in Gevrey, and with its special terroir it is usually one of the last parcels to be harvested. Pierre has very old vines here, the youngest are over 40 and the oldest are now 100 years old. This is not a wine to crack young though, and at least five years but ideally 15-20 should pass before you pull a cork. The Lavaut-St-Jacques is just a tiny notch below the Grand Crus in status, and it is made in miniscule quantities. Grab it before it is gone!
