The 2014 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru, which comes from three sources, is a little more savory on the nose compared to the Clos Saint Denis, perhaps sans the same level of purity. There is more tertiary notes here, a hint of bacon fat even. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, slightly broader tannin than the Clos Saint Denis that lends it the weight, the presence, albeit without the nervosité or the mineral core expressed by the Clos Saint Denis. Very fine, but I would like to see more nuance develop during the rest of its élevage.
Initially dominated by oak, this needs air to reveal the macerated cherry, strawberry, mineral and earth flavors. Tightly wound, yet the ripe fruit shows depth. Sweet fruit and dense tannins define the finish. Patience is required.?
