Tasting Notes

The 2017 Clos-de-la-Roche Grand Cru has an expressive bouquet that is a dead ringer for a Dujac, conveying plenty of energy and earthy black fruit laced with undergrowth and sea cave scents. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins and quite a firm backbone. Fresh from the start to the refreshing, elegant, saline finish that gets the saliva flowing. Excellent.

Score: 95

The 2017 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru is matured with 80% whole bunch fruit. It has a very precise, intense bouquet of blackberry, leather, sous-bois and light iris aromas that gently unfold in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This is a relatively linear and prudent Clos de la Roche that does not want to let its hair down, but feels reassuringly correct and precise on the finish. Very fine and understated.

Score: 92 - 94
