  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

    ($159; from a full crop level of 40 hectoliters per hectare, approximately the same yield as in 1996 and 1990) Saturated ruby-red. Extravagant nose combines blackberry, blueberry, gun metal and a hint of liqueur-like ripeness. Lush, large-scaled and highly concentrated, with compelling cherry, raspberry and red licorice flavors framed by oak. This has a big structure for aging, as well as wonderful finishing sweetness. The pH here is 3.55, vs. 3.65 for the 2000.

    The 1999 Clos de La Roche is the darkest of Lignier's offerings, verging on being dark ruby-colored. It exhibits a black cherry, blackberry, licorice, and violet-scented nose that leads to its explosive, immensely flavorful character. Medium to full-bodied and pure, this fresh, sweet wine is packed to the gills with cherries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. Ample yet highly delineated, it has a magnificently long, fruit-filled finish.

    Brilliant ruby red and classic Clos de la Roche character with its mix of black and red fruit, rich flavors, sleekly muscular tannins and intense go–t de terroir. The power and lushness of fruit is slightly reminiscent of a great Musigny. This has added weight and depth since barrel and is nothing short of sensational.

    This is CdlR as it was meant to be made. Even improving as it lingered in the glass. Would that I had another case of this, self-indulgent as that may be.
