Tasting Notes

The 1993 Clos de la Roche is one of the wines in this tasting that speaks to balance above all else. Silky, nuanced and understated, the 1993 is an absolutely joy to taste today, as all the elements fall into place effortlessly. Nothing in particular stands out and yet the wine is a pure joy to taste. The 1993 is a decidedly lithe, feminine Clos de la Roche, but it has a bit more depth than other similarly styled vintages, the 2000 in particular. Silky tannins, chalky, saline notes and a touch of sous bois frame the persistent finish.

Score: 93

This has finally arrived at its peak with soft but not invisible wood influence setting off spicy, wonderfully complex and fully mature aromas of earth and a hint of the sauvage. There is also excellent depth and concentration to the powerful, energetic and velvety broad-shouldered flavors that possess outstanding length. A terrific Lignier Clos de la Roche that is drinking perfectly now and should continue to do so for many years to come. Multiple and consistent notes save for one corked bottle.
