About the wine

Tasting notes

Wines from The Clos de la Roche vineyards are firm, deep and serious, closely akin to those from Chambertin. You'll find aromas of nutty earth and truffle , followed by intense red and black fruit. Wines made to age.

Expert review

A more elegant if not more complex nose merges pretty aromas of red and dark currant, a plenitude of floral elements along with hints of leather, sandalwood and earth. There is outstanding intensity to the supple mid-palate of the big-bodied flavors that firm up substantially and immediately on the lingering and highly complex finish. The supporting tannins are slightly spiky today but because they seem phenolically mature, I suspect that they will mellow out with time in bottle.
