Very backward and closed on the nose, with hints of black fruits, mocha and game in the deep background. Very rich and sweet but youthfully clenched, with purple fruit, wild herb and spice flavors currently overshadowed by oak. Best today on the extremely long, rising, firmly tannic finish, which leaves behind a seductive violet perfume. Delivers a near-perfect balance of sweetness and acidity to support a graceful evolution in bottle. -- Stephen Tanzer collapse

Wine Spectator, March 2016
An expressive wine, seductive for the silky texture and purity of cherry fruit. Licorice, spice and sandalwood notes add depth as this cruises to a long, smooth aftertaste, echoing the spice and toasty oak accents.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, December 2016
Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has an elegant bouquet, not as energetic as Virgile Lignier's own Clos de la Roche, adorned with earthy black fruit and dried flower... expand Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has an elegant bouquet, not as energetic as Virgile Lignier's own Clos de la Roche, adorned with earthy black fruit and dried flower (iris and violet) aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet ripe raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, the tannins exerting a gentle grip in the mouth, fine structure with impressive density on the svelte and modern-style finish. Perhaps more approachable than other Clos de la Roche 2013s, yet this is still a worthy wine. - Neal Martin collapse
