94-96The Wine Advocate

It exhibits a black cherry, blackberry, licorice, and violet-scented nose that leads to its explosive, immensely flavorful character. Medium to full-bodied and pure, this fresh, sweet wine is packed to the gills with cherries, raspberries..

93+ Stephen Tanzer

Extravagant nose combines blackberry, blueberry, gun metal and a hint of liqueur-like ripeness. Lush, large-scaled and highly concentrated, with compelling cherry, raspberry and red licorice flavors framed by oak.

...classic Clos de la Roche character with its mix of black and red fruit, rich flavors, sleekly muscular tannins and intense goût de terroir. The power and lushness of fruit is slightly reminiscent of Musigny. A wine worth searching for.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Morey-St.-Denis, Clos de la Roche

Clos de la Roche is a 41-acre Grand Cru vineyard in the Morey St.-Denis appellation in the Cotes de Nuits, in northern Burgundy. The tiny village of Morey St.-Denis is just south of Gevrey-Chambertin and Clos de Roche is considered the appellation’s most superior Grand Cru. The vineyard’s elevation ranges from 270 to 300 meters, and its soil is extremely rocky with excellent drainage. The soil is largely limestone, and in some places it is barely a foot deep. Writer Clive Coates calls Clos de Roche “the classiest of the Morey Grand Crus.” The largest landholders are Ponsot with 8.35 acres; Dujac, 4.88 acres; and Armand Rousseau, 3.7 acres.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
