Winemaker's Notes

tensely colored, full-bodied and firm, this wine has a ripe fragrance and a superior structure that lends it to aging. It will develop for 15 to 20 years in the bottle.

Pairs well with meats in red wine sauce, game and medium cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2011 Clos de la Roche has a wonderful, vibrant, generous bouquet that is actually more akin to a Bonnes-Mares with its precocious, effervescent red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins on the opening, supple in the mouth, well-balanced with great precision on the finish. This is one of the best 2011s from Louis Jadot. Drink 2014-2026. "
94 Points

"Good medium red. Complex, soil-driven aromas of cranberry, redcurrant, brown spices, mocha and menthol. The palate combines almost liqueur-like berry sweetness with notes of botanical herbs and pepper. Very young but already plush and fine-grained in the middle palate. Tightens up considerably on the back end.
Range: 91-93"
93 Points

"A pungent if highly complex nose offers up a wide range of aromas that include wood toast, menthol, tar, ripe dark berry, plum and warm earth. There is excellent richness to the solidly well-concentrated medium weight plus flavors that possess plenty of volume before terminating in a muscular and firm finish of striking perseverance.
Barrel Sample: 90-93 Points"
