  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    Dark bright red. Ripe black cherry and musky soil tones are lifted by a violet topnote. Juicy, tight and vibrant, with crunchy black fruit and spice flavors complicated by savory minerality. Broad, dusty tannins really clamp down on the finish of this seriously structured grand cru, but the wine's subtle rising length suggests it will come into harmony with time in bottle.

  • Burghound | Rating: 94

    This offers a completely different aromatic profile with its intense floral, earth and spice aromas that add considerable breadth to the red currant, plum and blue pinot fruit suffused nose. The flavors are not quite as concentrated or complex as those of the Clos de la Roche but the tannins are finer and there is slightly better detail as well on the dusty, firm and hugely long finish. We'll see in time but there appears to be just a bit more overall potential and hence the very slight difference in the ranges.

  • The dedication of the Arlaud family - father Herve, son Cyprien and daughter Bertille - has substantially improved this domaine each year. Their labor-intensive practices of hand pruning, stringent green harvesting and the use of a horse and plow instead of a tractor have produced the finest wines of the domaine's history.

    The wines are textbook expressions of each terroir and are remarkably complex and richly balanced. Look for the domaine to continue to build its strong reputation in vintages ahead.
