Vineyard notes: "This 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."

Jasper Morris: 94-97 Points

20% new wood. This is more body builder than dancer but all within the fine-grained Rousseau style. Rich full purple this has personality. Strikingly rich on the palate while entirely retaining its poise class and Clos de la Roche style

Wine Advocate
  • wa93-95

The 2018 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru is an excellent wine in the making wafting from the glass with a complex bouquet of red berries orange rind raw cocoa rich soil tones and grilled meats that's framed by a discrete application of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied deep and impressively racy with lively acids powdery tannins and a long resonant finish.

Burghound

A more elegant if not more complex nose merges pretty aromas of red and dark currant a plenitude of floral elements along with hints of leather sandalwood and earth. There is outstanding intensity to the supple mid-palate of the big-bodied flavors that firm up substantially and immediately on the lingering and highly complex finish. The supporting tannins are slightly spiky today but because they seem phenolically mature I suspect that they will mellow out with time in bottle. (Drink starting 2038)

Vinous
  • v91-93

The 2018 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has an intriguing involving bouquet a mixture of red and blue fruit that is a little disjointed at first but coheres nicely with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannins plenty of red fruit and a fleshy silky finish. Very fine. (Drink between 2022-2045)
