Domaine Arlaud Clos de la Roche 2001

Member Review by ryanopaz:

Medium intense with burgundy/cherry color. The nose is pure and clean with cherry, some light earth, soft chocolate notes come out with some time open and overall the nose remains lush to the last sip. Acid is medium to high with mild tannins that play second fiddle to the acid. The finsh is medium in length and the only real weakness is the lack of follow through on the finish. Sour cherry, light chocolate and earth all start to emerge on the palate taking their cue from the nose, but sadly they fade a bit early. Elegant though and throughly enjoyable, I just hoped for more. On the other hand, the acid play well with the vermouth marinaded duck breast I served and the earthiness melded seemlessly with the wild 3 mushroom soup I served. Fun wine, great dinner. 3.5/5 [NR]
