Tasting Notes

Brilliant ruby red and classic Clos de la Roche character with its mix of black and red fruit, rich flavors, sleekly muscular tannins and intense goût de terroir. The power and lushness of fruit is slightly reminiscent of a great Musigny. This has added weight and depth since barrel and is nothing short of sensational. Drink: 2012-2025

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (9), January 2003

The 1999 Clos de la Roche is the darkest of Lignier's offerings, verging on being dark ruby-coloured. It exhibits a black cherry, blackberry, licorice, and violet scented nose that leads to its explosive, immensely flavourful character. Medium to full-bodied and pure, this fresh, sweet wine is packed to the gills with cherries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries. Ample yet highly delineated, it has a magnificently long, fruit-filled finish.
