Raspberry and red cherry intermingle with spices on a silky texture and savoury finish. Great definition of flavour; immense class.
The 2014 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru, of which there are seven barrels this year, has a detailed, "cool" bouquet that gradually unfurls in the glass, offering Morello, crushed strawberry and cold limestone scents. The palate is beautifully balanced with fine tannin, gently gripping the mouth, with the mineral core very expressive on the finish. This is the standout 2014 from Cyprièn this vintage. (NM)
Medium red A sexy note of reduction to the aromas of strawberry, brown spices, game and rose petal, plus a whiff of white truffle Plush, silky and utterly seamless; wonderfully full for the vintage yet with no undue weight The red cherry and saline mineral flavors are less expressive than those of the Ruchots, conveying a restrained sweetness This is best today on the back end, where it displays sappy, subtle flavor intensity and spreads out to saturate the palate and build on the long aftertaste.

A deft though not invisible application of wood serves as a backdrop for the spicy and earthy aromas of both red and dark currant that displays a marked sauvage element. The mouth feel of the broad-shouldered flavors is restrained and surprisingly supple, indeed it is almost supple though the finish tightens up enough to suggest that this should reward mid-term cellaring. Overall this seems a bit less impressive than usual though I do like the complexity.
