Domaine Leroy Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 2013

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  11322

The 2013 Clos de la Roche has an airy and transparent nose that prioritizes the mineral-nature of the vineyard over the fruit at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, lithe in the mouth rather than fleshy, with very good weight, linear, but very harmonious and tender. This is a more understated Clos de la Roche in 2013, nevertheless a beautiful wine that I suspect might drink earlier than the other Grand Crus and yet will last just as long. Drink date: 2018-2038. Score - 93-95. (Neal Martin,, Dec. 29, 2014)
