"Blessed with an enviable patrimony of vineyard holdings and plenty of old vines too...The ensuing wines are beautifully fragrant, with filigree tannins, vibrant fruit tones and sneaky persistence. In short, Domaine Duroché continues its ascent, and readers who haven't yet taken notice should do so before it's too late." - William Kelly, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pierre Duroché has quickly become one of Gevrey’s most exciting winemakers. When it comes to purity of expression and coaxing an intricate and subtle complexity from Gevrey, it's clear that Duroché has the touch. It's impossible not to be wowed by Duroché's Grand Crus, but the true sensitivity and quality of the winemaking is best seen in the lieu-dits bottlings. They make abundantly clear the precision and attention to detail that's in play at this domain.
Pierre Duroché, a 5th generation winemaker, took over the domain in 2005 and quality has skyrocketed. The transition gave the domain a huge boost of energy. The wines were good in the past, but now they’re on a whole new level - and getting better and better with each vintage. Once you taste Duroché’s wines, you're immediately convinced that they're important. The 2017s are some of the best yet. Don’t miss.
