Medium red. Very dark, youthfully medicinal aromas of black cherry, crushed blackberry and mocha, with a liqueur-like aspect. Then ripe and juicy but quite tight in the mouth, and much less pliant today than the Champeaux. Privileges savory soil tones over primary fruit and easy sweetness. Finishes very long and aromatic, with the structure to age. (ST)
The wood toast that this had displayed from cask (see herein) is still present and while it's not strong, it is at the same time not invisible. Otherwise there is an appealing freshness to the complex and lightly spicy nose of mostly dark pinot fruit, earth, leather and moderately sauvage aromas. There is good vibrancy and detail to the solidly powerful medium-bodied flavors that display good concentration in the context of the vintage before culminating in a balanced and persistent finish. This is not a big wine by the standards of a classic Clos de la Roche but it has everything it needs to reward another 4 to 7 years of cellar time.
Crimson, crystal clear. Quite a haunting nose. Great sweet palate hit at first. Juicy red cherry fruit. Very charming with quite a bit of grandeur. Lots of very, very fine tannins. Very racy, like taffeta. Strong and cracking texture. Well done and very clean. 18/20 points.
