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). This had just finished its malo and thus the nose was muddled with secondary fermentation aromas though the underlying fruit does seem notably ripe. There is again very fine volume and intensity to the very rich, indeed even lavish, middle weight flavors that possess an attractive vibrancy before concluding in a saline, complex and sneaky long finish.
