(WA94-96 points) The 2012 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru had a lot of reduction on the nose, but the palate tannic and masculine, dark and introspective yet well balanced with a crescendo of flavors towards an energetic, spicy finish that leave the tongue tingling after the wine has departed. This looks like being a vin de garde, such is the grip and forcefulness of this wine. - Neal Martin

One of the more polished wines in the range, the Clos de la Roche is all about saline-infused energy and brilliance today. I very much like the precision here, but time has shown that the Clos de la Roche only starts to blossom with considerable bottle age. Today, the layers of dimension are present, but also compacted. In a few years, the 2012 will be truly magical.

There is enough reduction to notice though not so much as to completely dominate the floralsuffused nose. This also possesses relatively fine-grained tannins though there is notably more size, weight and power as well... There is enough reduction to notice though not so much as to completely dominate the floralsuffused nose. This also possesses relatively fine-grained tannins though there is notably more size, weight and power as well as a bit more complexity to the mineral-driven and impeccably well-balanced finish that is both explosive and palate staining. This is most impressive as it manages to deliver stunning intensity and depth of material without any undue heaviness. Note however that this is one very structured wine that will require a lengthy stay in a cool cellar to arrive at its full peak. 2030+

Rich black fruits on the nose. Very juicy indeed – all seduction. Sweet finish. Very clean and brisk. 18/20

Much more reduced than the wines from Vosne-Romanée, offering scents of cinnamon, nutmeg, underbrush and sweet oak. At once tactile and backward in the mouth, showing impressive medicinal reserve to its flavors of red and black fruits and spices. A fleshier, somewhat more saline version of the 2013, probably for drinking earlier than the later vintage. And yet this soil-inflected wine is a bit hard to get a handle on in its current form and may turn out even better than my current scores suggests. 93+
