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

Billowing aromas of pink florals, white rose, red and dark berries, cocoa, freshly churned soil, truffle and cedar. In the mouth it's intense and powerful in flavour, but so fine and fresh. There's earthiness, minerality and fruit in abundance, held within firm fine tannins and beautifully balanced acidity. So elegant. Though drinking beautifully now, this will age for decades and continue to grow in complexity and personality.
