2014 Clos De La Roche Grand Cru Domaine Armand Rousseau 75cl / 13.5%
A bottle of 2014 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Burgundy from Domaine Armand Rousseau.
Clos de la Roche is situated in the commune of Morey-Saint-Denis in Burgundy's Côte-d'Or, bordering Gevrey-Chambertin in the north and the Grand Cru vineyard of Clos Saint-Denis in the south.
'Note: from a 1.48 ha holding, 1 ha of which is in Les Fremières and the rest in Clos de la Roche proper; 10% new wood. This is....moderately reduced and impossible to properly assess. Otherwise there is excellent volume to the equally muscular big-bodied flavors that are richer but don't quite have the same sense of underlying tension before terminating in a palate coating and quite firmly structured finish that delivers terrific length. This is a big but seamlessly well-balanced effort that should also amply repay extended cellaring. 92-94/100'
