Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep

ABV:
13 %

Notes

Fermented with slightly fewer stalks than usual (20%) and aged in 15% new wood, this is about as pure and honest as Côte Rôtie gets. Expressive wild fruit nose of blackberries and raspberries, this shows elegance grip and poise, a really close-knit and tight-packed wine, very intense, with a lovely balance between red and black fruits.

Notes
Dark ruby. Fresh cherry and dark berries on the nose, with exotic Asian spices and woodsmoke arriving with aeration. Lively and silky, with sappy, medium-bodied red and dark berry flavors gaining a spicy character on the close. Lots of flavor here but no excess weight or ripeness, or hard edges. I find this tasty right now but Clusel advises waiting about eight years to get the most out of it.

Clusel Roch

Clusel Roch

This small artisanal Domaine, run by Brigitte Roch, Gilbert Clusel and their son Guillaume, only employs organic methods to work its vineyards and for some time have consistently had some of the lowest yields in the region. Such low yields and excellent vineyard sites help to produce excellent wines that are made in a gentle, pure and refined style. There is little new oak; depending on the vintage a large proportion of whole bunches may be included in fermentations and extractions are soft resulting in elegant, refined and characterful Côte Rôtie that age seamlessly. The standard cuvée is aged in one- and two-year-old barriques for a year, whilst wine from the old vines of Les Grandes Places require ageing in a proportion of new oak barriques, rarely more than 30-40%.
