User Reviews for Lucien le Moine Clos de la Roche

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Clos de la Roche, on the other hand, emphasizes focus and linearity. The wine-s length alone is remarkable. Sweet red cherries, dried roses, exotic spices, smoke and licorice are some of the many notes that are woven throughout this utterly compelling, complex Clos de La Roche. The gracious, weightless finish is strikingly beautiful...94-96" WA 2/12 "Medium red. Sexy aromas and flavors of plum, cherry, underbrush, mocha, brown spices and minerals. Seamless on entry, then vibrant and mouthcoating in the middle; a bit more expressive today than the Clos Saint-Denis. Most impressive today on the very long finish, which shows serious tannic power and excellent lift...92-95" IWC 1/12 "A fresh, cool and highly layered nose features notes of pure red pinot fruit, spice, earth, plum and game hints. There is the same superb richness to the suave and relatively supple middle weight flavors blessed with copious amounts of palate staining dry extract. The underpinning tannins are quite dense but both ripe and ultra-fine if not quite as fine as those of the Clos St. Denis. By contrast, there is even more power and even a bit more overall depth on the very firm, long and impeccably well-balanced finish...93-96" BH 04/12
