International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91Good medium ruby. Very ripe aromas of medicinal dark cherry, tar, mocha and dried herbs; very Clos de la Roche! Sweet and concentrated but a bit youthfully inexpressive today, with the medicinal cherry character dominating the palate. With moderate mid-palate flesh, the tannins currently show a somewhat gritty quality.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2007
Wine Advocate | Rating: 93Jadot's 2005 Clos de la Roche offers scents of red raspberry, cherry, resin and maple syrup. Bright and sappy, sweetly-fruited and spicy on the palate, it finishes with smoky, resinous and faintly-bitter medicinal notes mingling with persistently sweet, ripe fruit. While quite accessible today, this carries a considerable load of tannin beneath its folds of fruit, should have at least ten year potential, and may well enter a tough period after bottling.Author: David Schildknecht
