Good bright, dark red. Complex nose mends raspberry, crushed rock, musky minerality, brown spices and a whiff of leather. Sappy, saline and pure, with rich, concentrated flavors of ripe black fruits and minerals. Finishes very long, with dusty tannins and good stony lift. Rousseau noted that he may begin using a bit of new oak for this cuvee in vintage 2012.

The 2010 Clos de la Roche is fascinating to taste after the Mazis. The Clos de la Roche is all about power, structure and length, qualities it has in spades. There is huge depth and serious extract to the fruit, with equally big tannins to provide support. Layers of intense fruit are intermingled with persistent saline notes on the vibrant, finely chiseled finish. It will take years for the tannins to start melting away, but when they do the 2010 will be a dazzling wine. Actually, it already is.
