Domaine Duroché

What a success story this domaine has been. Recently married Pierre Duroché took over from his This wonderful domaine and our company seem intrinsically linked, both in terms of growth and recognition. Pierre took over from his father Gilles around the time we registered ourselves at Companies House and not long afterwards we began importing his wines, starting with the 2008 vintage. Back then we were excited about the potential of this quietly ambitious young winemaker, who had great vineyards at his disposal and an apparent innate feel for what they could provide in terms of fruit quality. His gentle vinification methods were right up our chemin and ever since he has thrilled us with what he has produced. Today, Pierre, now a father of two, forges proudly on as the winemaker at one of the most sought after estates in the Côte de Nuits. The purity of fruit we fell in love with remains but now there is an intensity and complexity which makes the wines just sublime. In 2018 he launches a new label, officially a negotiant one, but in reality it’s merely an extension of the existing domaine as the vines come from his father-in-law. The next chapter has begun. `What I like about Duroché is that they capture the essence of terroir. There’s a sense of edginess, a transparency about these wines that express both place and season.` Neal Martin, April 2015
