Robert Parker – 88-90
The 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Prieur has a more earthy bouquet compared to Drouhin-Laroze’s fellow ’13s: nicely defined, but broody at first. A few swirls of the glass and it begins to awaken. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp red tarty fruit, hints of orange and marmalade with a straightforward but focused, easy-drinking finish.
Anticipated maturity: 2016-2027
