Domaine Armand Rousseau Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 2014

Reviews "The Domaine Armand Rousseau Clos De La Roche Grand Cru 2014 is also moderately reduced and impossible to properly assess. Otherwise there is excellent volume to the equally muscular big-bodied flavours that are richer but don't quite have the same sense of underlying tension before terminating in a palate coating and quite firmly structured finish that delivers terrific length. This is a big but seamlessly well-balanced effort that should also amply repay extended cellaring."
92-94 Points - Allen Meadows, Burghound

"The 2014 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has a fragrant bouquet, coquettish at first, then opening with wet limestone, Morello and cassis scents; it is very defined and focused though not powerful. The palate is silky smooth on the entry, beautifully poised with pure red cherries infused with orange sorbet and captivating mineralilé on the finish. This is one of the best Clos de la Roche that I have tasted from Rousseau in recent years."
94-96 Points - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate #222 (Dec 2015)

"(10% new oak): Bright medium red. Captivating nose offers aromas of cherry, brown spices, mocha, menthol and underbrush lifted by high notes of blood orange and flowers. Liqueur-like raspberry and spice flavors show outstanding precision and perfume thanks to a firm mineral spine. Finishes spicy, refined and very long, saturating the mouth without leaving any impression of weight. This really perks up the salivary glands. Rousseau owns a full hectare of Clos de la Roche in the lower part of the cru, just under Clos Saint-Denis, and another half a hectare higher up on the hillside."
91-94 Points - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous

This Clos De La Roche vineyard lies in Morey-Saint-Denis and is the only appellation in the Domain which is not part of the commune of Gevrey-Chambertin. The vines grow on limestone and calcareous-clay soils from the mid-jurassic period. Barely 30cm under the soil are large blocks of stone that give the plot its name.

Domaine Armand Rousseau acquired two parcels in this area: one in 1920-1921 and the other in 1975. It was awarded Grand Cru status in 1936. The wines are mineral and vibrant; long, firm and very consistent. The 2014 vintage cellaring potential is 20 to 30 years.
