Clos de la Roche, Domaine Coquard Loison-Fleurot 2018
There are vines in Chabiots dating back to 1933 and 1954, and slightly younger vines in Mochamps. More red fruit than black with good tension. Medium plus bodied with very good length, all flows very nicely. Still some blue fruit, the alcohol level makes it less dry than usual, indeed silkier.

The 2018 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has a gorgeous bouquet of dark berry fruit, crushed stone and touches of truffle and iodine. It just bursts from the glass. The palate is very ripe and sweet on the entry, displaying a lot of sucrosity and a very vibrant finish laden with cola-tinged black fruit. It might just be a little too much for my palate, although I suspect it will be very seductive.
