One Of The Best Cellars In Burgundy?

By

Drouhin-Laroze have one of the best cellars in Burgundy. In fact they don’t just have one – they have two like this, one above the other.

Drouhin-Laroze

This is effectively the first year cellar where the new wine is racked. It normally stays here for about six months until the malolactic fermentation in spring the following year.

Underneath is an identical cellar, where the wine normally ages a year, before bottling in spring.

Clos de Tart also have a similar arrangement but this is rare in Burgundy.
