I guess I should probably add this now, since I brought it up in the Featured User section. I think this would be a tough wine for some to like, mainly due to reduction and the high whole bunch used, but I thought it was brilliant. Fine and concentrated. I like the reduction on this - very Mersault-like according to AA. Floral perfume, spice, bunch aromatics, pomegranate. Palate's very light yet intense. Juicy red fruit, flinty reduction, earthy mineral undertones, hints of green herbs and tea. Lengthy and focused. A very sexy pino!

NB: A generous open by CW. The 2010 Roch's have been quite hard to come by for me. Years ago, the 2010 Pinoterie, a cuvee made from grand and 1er cru berries that fell off the sorting table due to their ripeness, totally blew me away. Till this day, I've been trying to find another bottle, so it's nice to be able to see another wine from the vintage in recent times. According to CW, Prieure Roch totally nailed 2010 and so far, I tend to agree. The domaine's one of those producers where vintage variation's huge - don't get me started on the 11's 🤮

Gorgeous. Layer upon layer of nose and palate. Drinks well now, could age for a LONG time.
