    ($130) Good bright, dark red. Spicy candied cherry, rose petal and clove on the nose. Dense, sweet and lush, with lovely depth to the flavors of spicy strawberry, cherry and minerals. Even fuller on the back end, but by no means overly sweet or a blockbuster. The wine's fat is nicely framed by an edge of acidity and some sweet oak tannins. With extended aeration, this showed classic Clos de la Roche notes of smoky red fruits and dried flowers.

    A completely different aromatic expression that is more deeply pitched, as well as more elegant and complex, darker fruit, earth and game notes continue onto the rich, round and supple flavors that are textured and delicious yet this is entirely serious with good depth and length. This is slightly less concentrated overall but there is good mid-palate sappiness to buffer the medium tannins.

    This is special. The aromatics just soar out of the glass. The wine is balanced, unheavy, and finishes long and lovely.

Jean Raphet finally passed control of the domaine to his son Gerard in 2002, though his son had been tending the vineyards for over a decade. The wines from this property are remarkable and brilliant renditions of Pinot Noir. Equal parts caressing finesse, fruit purity and aromatic bliss, they have excellent track records at all levels. From the Bourgogne, to the mere cases production of the Grand Cru Clos de Beze, Raphet wines are consistently palate pleasing.
