My note: This south facing, more solar exposure is reflected in its richness and fruit intensity, well complemented by its decomposed limestone underpinnings, giving it a hot/cold dynamic sense of interplay, and has a self evident sense of aromatic class. A very good and complete wine, as it so often is. For those who favor a bit more richness with their stoniness, this would maybe be more their cup of tea than the mineral power of La Roche. But such diversity is what parcellary specificity is all about….
“(from 60+ year old vines located in Vergisson). A softly exotic array reflects notes of white peach, dried apricot, passion fruit and a pretty floral component. On the palate there is once again an attractive mouth feel to the solidly concentrated and opulent medium weight flavors that brim with dry extract while delivering fine length on the citrusy if mildly warm finale.
