RATINGS

95Burghound.com

The delicious and muscular medium weight plus flavors display ample minerality that continues onto the velvety and mouth coating finish that seems to go on and on.

91+ Stephen Tanzer

Tight, liqueur-like nose hints at cherry pie, lead pencil and varnish...there are subtle lingering cherry and mineral flavors on the aftertaste.

90-92Robert M. Parker Jr.

It has outstanding depth of fruit, as well as copious quantities of ripe tannins.

18Jancis Robinson

Very well mannered and beautifully balanced... Sweet and fresh. Medium weight with a hint of orange peel. The opposite of forceful.

REGION

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.

TYPE

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.
