Clos de la Roche, Lucien Le Moine 2011
A beautifully well-layered nose features notes of spice, earth and smoke on the ripe and cool red pinot, dark currant and plum suffused aromas. There is fine detail and a palpable sense of energy to the robust, muscular and firm medium weight plus flavors that avoid any sense of rusticity on the balanced and impressively persistent finish where a touch of wood surfaces. This should be excellent in due time.
