Burghound, January 2016,
There is a distinct herbal character to the fresh red raspberry and cherry scented nose where nuances of spice, earth and game can be seen; note however that the vaguely green aspect largely fades with air though even after 24 hours of aeration does not completely disappear. There is good intensity and underlying tension to the nicely detailed and mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that deliver acceptable depth and length on the mildly acid-tinged finale. This may come together but as the tasting note suggests, it is awkward and not especially well-balanced at present and overall, I was disappointed.
Domaine Hubert et Laurent Lignier
Clos de la Roche
The finest and biggest Grand Cru red wine appellation in Burgundy's Morey-St-Denis, on the Côte deNuits, covering 16.9ha. Clos de la Roche's soils are rich in marl which gives more body, depth and ageing potential to its wines than most other vineyards. Wines from Clos de la Roche tend to be powerful and full bodied with black fruit aromas and flavours, developing rich, gamey characters with age.
