Robert Parker 94
The 2019 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru opens in the glass with rich aromas of berry fruit, loamy soil, peonies, dark chocolate and cedar. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and elegantly muscular, it’s generous and enveloping, with velvety tannins and fine depth at the core. Bright and lively, it’s another wine that marries maturity with freshness.
Cask sample. Not as expressive on the nose as the Gevreys today. Smooth and savoury on the palate but a bit restrained. It’s all there but needs a bit of time. Just a little bitter on the end. (No reduction, unlike usually.)
Anticipated maturity: 2030-2048
