Gevrey Chambertin 2021 Domaine Duroche
The first of the two new village cuvées is Domaine Duroché Gevrey-Chambertin 2021. It is a blend of regular Gevrey-Chambertin village lieux-dits (Le Clos, Les Champs, En Vosne), and Les Champeaux 1er Cru, and it creates a delightful example of Gevrey generosity. This has notable intensity and vividness, yet is delicate with generous notes of wild strawberries and a hint of raspberries. A sensual, emotional wine, and I adore it.

Under Pierre Duroche’s stewardship this domaine has risen to become one of the most heralded estates in Gevrey Chambertin. The former mountain climber is widely considered amongst the most considered, progressive and talented producers in the Cote d’Or – both for his painstaking vineyard work and his impeccable lightness of touch in the winery.
The measure of a domaine is often the quality of their village wine and Duroche’s 2021 Gevrey Chambertin is a stunner.
Duroche’s northerly Gevrey vineyards, on the Brochon side of the village, were devastated by the April 2021 frost. A couple of months later the same sector was hit by hail. Pierre was beset by mildew, oidium and botrytis. In the end, the vines managed an average yield of just 20 hectolitres per hectare in 2021, yet the Duroche wines are beyond impressive:
This is a strong set of wines from Duroché…Ethereal as always, Duroché continues his impressive run of form with whatever Nature throws his way

The tasting was an absolute tour de force

Faced with non-viable yields, Pierre Duroche chose not to produce some of his regular crus in 2021. As a result his Gevrey Chambertin 2021 is an assemblage including the lieux dits of Le Clos, Champ and En Vosne. In addition, the production of 1er Cru Les Champeaux was too small to bottle so Pierre blended it into his decidedly superior village 2021.
I’m thrilled to have amassed more than 30 cases of this stellar 2021 village wine for our Fete du Bourgogne. So far, every offer in this series has featured Grand Cru wines commanding Grand Cru prices – Thibault Liger-Belair’s Richebourg, Philippe Colin’s Chevalier Montrachet and a host of top crus from Coquard-Loison-Fleurot. Top class Burgundy is not the sole preserve of the Grand Crus so I’m delighted to feature this beautiful village Gevrey to close out week one of our festival.
Offered subject to remaining unsold. Available in Singapore in Q3 2023.
Gevrey Chambertin 2021
34 cases (1×6) OC available @ $810 per case (w/ GST $874.80)
This year the straight Gevrey-Chambertin includes Le Clos, Champ, En Vosne and 1er cru Champeaux. A fresh even ruby purple. The bouquet is a little more reserved than for the Bourgogne Rouge, but with a suggestion of greater depth. Now some fresh but sweet cherries start to come out. Very balanced and though accessible at first, the back of the palate delivers additional intensity which will take longer to emerge. A good balance with the tannins, and fine persistence. Just the right acidity. Drink from 2025-2030.
90-93pts – Jasper Morris MW
The 2021 Gevrey-Chambertin Village this year represents a blend of Le Clos, Champ, En Vosne and Les Champeaux that are usually bottled separately. It has a delicate, pure bouquet with delineated wild strawberry, cranberry and crushed stone aromas. This is nicely focused. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, slightly chalky with a sustained, peppery finish. Delightful. Drink over the next decade.
90/100 – Neal Martin
This year, the 2021 Gevrey-Chambertin Village includes lieux-dits Clos, Champ and En Vosne, along with premier cru Champeaux, and the result is unsurprisingly excellent, exhibiting aromas of sweet plums, raspberries, petals and spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny palate endowed with attractive flesh and texture.
