Appellation: Morey St. Denis, Cote de Nuits
Producer: Bernstein, Olivier
Rated 94 points by The Burghound: "A highly complex and unusually elegant nose for young Clos de la Roche features notes of purple fruit, violets and spiced plum along with the usual pungent earth character that can also be found on the rich, intense and broad-shouldered flavors that possess a seductively textured mid-palate as well as excellent length. There is good phenolic ripeness to the supporting structural elements as well as plenty of tannin buffering extract. In sum, this very firm but wellbalanced effort is very clearly built to age and will need plenty of cellar time."
