Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Vinous – 93

The 2017 Clos de la Roches Grand Cru, which is tasted from two barrels since one is reduced, has a well defined bouquet with brambly red fruit, candied orange peel, hints of cassis and later, vanilla pod. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, slightly sorbet in character with hints of mulberry and fig towards the complex and quite persistent finish. One of the more cerebral Clos de la Roche releases from Domaine Rousseau. [Neal Martin, 10/01/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2022-2040

Robert Parker – 92

The 2017 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru displays notes of sweet red and black berries, licorice, rich soil, grilled meat and citrus peel. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, with more density and concentration than the Charmes-Chambertin, balanced by juicy acids. Though the tannins are supple, it will demand and reward bottle age. This is a cuvee that continues its upward trajectory chez Rousseau. [William Kelley, 08/12/2018]

JancisRobinson.com – 19/20

Very slightly smoky but there’s still fine dark-red fruits showing through. There’s just a touch of vanilla sweetness as it opens. Delicate with the freshness I associate with stems (though it is fully destemmed). Complex to describe because there is incredible finesse in the tannins but they are very present, very direct. There’s a rocky, almost bitter finish that says ‘stay away’ and underneath it all is a river of fine dark fruit. (JH) [27/11/2018]
