Dominique Laurent focuses on buying old vines across many appellations in Bourgogne in which most of the wines are from negotiant arms, in which he works very closely with growers to ensure the quality of the grapes. He believes that Vieilles Vignes (old vines) gives the complexity and texture to the wines and by applying more oak than most other producers in Burgundy, the style of his wine comes out to be powerful, richly-flavored and complex.
"...I continue to find his best bottles to be among the sexiest wines produced in Burgundy..." - Stephen Tanzer on Dominique Laurent

95-97pts Stephen Tanzer
(from 90-year-old vines; almost entirely from destemmed fruit): Bright, deep ruby. Knockout Chambolle perfume of blackberry, black raspberry, crushed rock, coffee, mocha and wild herbs, plus a whiff of gibier. As impressive in the mouth as it is on the nose, showing outstanding sappiness and soil-driven saline complexity to its flavors of raspberry, botanical herbs, smoke and minerals. Utterly palate-staining and unflagging on the back end: one really senses the pulpy, mellow, tiny grapes. Still, Laurent prefers his Clos de Beze today for its refinement.
Subject to final confirmation. Available in 6-8 weeks.
