Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep

ABV:
13 %

Notes

A wonderful mix of velvety, dark, ripe brambly fruit flavours and brighter red cherry and cherry stone notes. Full and with a smooth, caressing texture that provides solid foundations for the fruit. Finishing on peppery, sapid notes giving this lift. A blend largely from the schist, south-east facing vineyards of the Verenay commune including the lower part of Viaillere, Champon and Le Plan. As ever a proportion of whole bunches have been used in fermentation, a little larger than normal given the ripeness of the crop - 50%. Ageing is in oak barriques for at least 15 months with less than 15% new wood.

Notes
Saturated ruby. Displays candied blue fruits, cherry, pungent flowers, olive and baking spices on the highly fragrant nose. Sweet and precise on the palate, offering mineral-laced blueberry, cherry-cola and violet pastille flavors that are braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Smoothly blends power and delicacy and finishes long and spicy, with discreet tannins adding framework and gentle grip.

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%.
