The 2nd wine in the group of 6. Medium bodied yet rich, sweet and spicy. Very good intensity and cellaring potential.

Still so young. Tannins were ripe but firm. Great complexity and intensity. The fruit still dominated. Great balance. Really opened up over two hours. Needs another 5-10 years.

Tasted blind. Reddish purple but light and translucent. Notes of raspberry, dark fruit, spice and some rhubarb. Puckering and chewy in the mouth. Still present tannins. Was nice today but this will be better in 10-15 years.

(the yield here was 45 hectoliters per hectare): Good full red. Knockout explosive nose combines raspberry, brown spices, underbrush, mustard seed and roast coffee. Very rich and sweet but with terrific energy and minerality lifting the wine's red fruit flavors. This grand cru is evolving at a snail's pace and seemed to grow even fresher as it opened in the glass. Finishes with firm but suave tannins and outstanding slowly rising length, with an unexpected piquant note of blood orange. This incredible Clos de la Roche is just approaching its peak. The most amazing thing of all: I tasted it from a 375-milliliter bottle. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, March 2018)

2001 was balance and silky. Black tea and ripe berries

Gorgeous, pure and exceptionally beautiful, with fabulous texture. Even so, the 2002 needs at last 5 more years and probably more to be at its best. Today the aromatics are not especially expressive.

Rare generous fruit quality meets rich tannic profile. Tightly wound but lovely. Opened up towards the very end.
