Drouhin-Laroze is quickly becoming one of the most important estates in Gevrey. The domaine owns an impressive portfolio of vineyards and the quality of the wines have improved greatly in recent years. The 2006 Gevrey is a blend of eight vineyards (En Combe, Croix des Champs, En Vignes Belles, Aux Mairchais, En Champs, Aux Epointures, En Pallud, En Jouise) and is a classic example of the appellation. I drank this bottle over two nights. At first, the wine showed little on the nose and was very firm on the palate. The fruit was dark and lacked charm. On night two, a bouquet of bright fruits emerged. In the mouth, the wine remained slightly rustic and powerful, but the tannins had begun to soften. Typical of the 2006 vintage, the fruit was red instead of black. The wine was very nice and will probably hit its peak around 2015. After underperforming for many years, Drouhin-Laroze is now a reliable source for Gevrey wines.
