Louis Jadot Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 2012
Clos de la Roche位於Morey-Saint-Denis村北部，也被認為是村中品質最佳且最穩定的特級園，釀出的葡萄酒豐滿而有結構，通常不會像Vonnes-Mares般粗曠，常帶有櫻桃與松露的香氣特徵，也經常會比Clos Saint-Denis濃厚許多。釀造Clos de la Roche的知名酒莊包括Domaine Armand Rousseau、Domaine Dujac等等。
94 pts Allen Meadows, Burghound:
A pungently earthy nose also offers supporting aromas of menthol, wood, spice and both red and dark fruit components. There is excellent richness and body to the large-scaled, mineral-inflected and openly powerful flavors that possess plenty of tannin-buffering dry extract before terminating in a striking long finish. This can't match the Musigny for sheer depth but this is a very fine wine all the same with excellent cellaring potential.
94 pts Neal Martin :
The 2012 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has a primal bouquet that opens up with encouragement, but only slightly, with mulberry and raspberry fruit, touches of briary and damp moss. The palate is underpinned by very fine tannins. This is a feminine, harmonious and sensual Clos de la Roche prioritising elegance over power. There is a long tail on the finish that is velvety smooth and caressing. This is very seductive and classy.
94 pts Antonio Galloni, Vinous :
The 2012 Clos de La Roche is explosive from the very first taste. Dark fruit, smoke, tobacco, licorice and incense all take shape in the glass. At times wild and exotic, the 2012 is rich and deep, with huge tannins and imposing structure. Over time, though, the wine becomes more delicate and perfumed. Dried rose petals, mint and raspberries linger on the sweet, expressive finish. The 2012 was fermented with 100% whole clusters. As beautiful as the 2012 is, today, it doesn't look like a wine that will age for many decades, as is the norm here. Time will tell, though, and the 2012 is at the beginning of what promises to be many years of exceptional drinking before longevity is even an issue.
