Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous (2015 Vintage):
"The 2015 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has a very elegant, quite understated bouquet of red currant, raspberry and crushed stone scents that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is beautifully balanced with supple tannin, perfectly judged acidity and gentle grip, but there is so much tension toward the focused finish. Add in the silky-smooth texture and the sense of energy, and you have a wonderful Grand Cru. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting." - Neal Martin (Nov 2018)

95 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine (2015 Vintage):
"Lean and taut, revealing saturated black cherry, blackberry, Asian spice and light vegetal flavors, this red is all about firm structure at this stage. Finishes with elements of mineral and oak spice. Patience is required. Best from 2023 through 2042. 5 cases imported." — BS (Jul 31, 2018)
