Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Musigny 2018

  • v96-98


Available for:
This Grand Cru is matured in 100% new oak barrels with personalised toasts made from a selection of the finest woods from the forests in the Allier and Nivernais regions. The colour of the Musigny is a delicate and deep magenta purple with wild rose, violet, blackcurrant and raspberry on the nose. With age come odours of leather and cherry spirit. Its almost caramelized grapes and aromas of open flowers embalm the palate with a texture of voluptuous taffetas. Its length leads us towards the endless complexity of its aromas. Pair with semi-cooked foie gras terrine with roasted figs, scrambled eggs forest, burgundy trout, duck aiguillette with orange.

The 2018 Musigny Grand Cru is matured entirely in new oak. During racking in July, it was decided that one of the two barrels was too toasty, and so the wine was racked into a used Bonnes-Mares barrel. It has a compelling bouquet of intense blackberry, raspberry and floral aromas that seem to explode from the glass. The palate is very well balanced with fine, supple tannins. I adore the symmetry of this Musigny and the panache it exudes toward the very long finish. This is one of the best the domaine has produced. Outstanding.
