"The 2017 Clos de la Roches Grand Cru, which is tasted from two barrels since one is reduced, has a well-defined bouquet with brambly red fruit, candied orange peel, hints of cassis and later, vanilla pod. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, slightly sorbet in character with hints of mulberry and fig towards the complex and quite persistent finish. One of the more cerebral Clos de la Roche releases from Domaine Rousseau." - Neal Martin
