The 2013 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has a more complete and harmonious bouquet than the Clos Saint Denis '13 at the moment, with attractive undergrowth scents, bay leaf and a sprig of thyme. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannin and fine structures. Indeed, this is a more masculine Clos de la Roche. It is poised though reticent on the finish and will reward those who cellar for at least 4 or 5 years.
?While the wood treatment is by no means invisible it is more modulated than the Renardes with its lovely spice elements adding both elegance and breadth to the distinctly earthy and very fresh red berry liqueur-like aromas. Here too there is first-rate size, weight and punch to the powerful broad-shouldered flavors that are shaped by equally firm tannins on the dusty, palate coating and strikingly long finish. Yet again, patience is indispensable
