Description

“Good medium red. Musky raspberry, brown spices, crushed stone and smoky minerality on the nose; an essence of Morey-Saint-Denis. Sappy, saline and highly concentrated, with an urgent crushed raspberry flavor complicated by minerals, spices and underbrush. The spicy character builds on the very long, slowly mounting aftertaste, with ripe tannins covered by fruit.” 93-95 Steve Tanzer

“The 2012 Clos de La Roche is attractive, but it’s also a bit monolithic. Menthol, crushed rocks, smoke, spices, anise and earthy notes add complexity to the fruit. There is plenty of energy and power in the glass, but less in the way of elegance or finesse, at least today.” 93-95 Antonio Galloni
