    Description

    Clos de la Roche 1985
    Vieilles Vignes, Ponsot
    1nl, 1lscl
    Magnum (2)
    " A truly spectacular nose of earth, cassis, underbrush and explosive, sexy, utterly seductive black fruit aromas leads to dense, concentrated, sappy and entirely pure flavors of incredible complexity, depth and length. This is wonderfully impressive though even from this format I would be inclined to drink this sooner than later to preserve the fruit as there is just a hint of acidity poking through on the finish. That said, this remains a genuinely great wine of reference standard caliber. Relatively consistent notes though the last two bottles haven't been quite at the level reviewed above though the difference is slight."(94ptsAM)
