Country of Origin: France
Grapes: Pinot Noir 100%
Style: Soft and Perfumed Red
Produced with grapes from vines planted between 1934 and 1980, growing in limestone and sandy marl soils. After a relatively cold winter, March was warm, so the vines started shooting early. There was concern at the end of April, when temperatures dropped to -1.5⁰C, but fortunately no damage occurred. May and June were dry and hot allowing the grapes to develop well. Although there was drought in August, gentle rains just before the harvest at the beginning of September allowed the grapes to develop beautifully with the perfect balance between sugar and acidity.
The wine was aged in oak for 13 months before bottling without fining or filtration.
Domaine Duroché produced their first wine in 1933. Today, the fifth generation of the family own 8.5 hectares of vineyards in the Bourgogne, Gevrey-Chambertin, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru and Grands Crus appellations and have their winery and cellars in the heart of Gevrey-Chambertin.
