- Tasting Notes
An overtly sauvage nose reflects notes of humus, earth and very ripe dark currant aromas. The big, powerful and impressively concentrated flavors possess absolutely outstanding length and richness. This mouth-coating effort is exceptionally firm and unlike the Charmes, this is not likely to drink well before at least 10 years of bottle age and it may require fully 20 to reach its full prime. Either way, this is really very impressive.
– Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Score: 94
The 2015 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has a focused, quite reserved bouquet that seems to temper the precocity of the growing season and allow the stony terroir to filter through the fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple and extremely fine tannin, just the right amount of salinity with an edgy and vibrant, feminine finish. This is a graceful Clos de la Roche from Bichot that should age with style.
