Clos de la Roche, Domaine Coquard Loison-Fleurot 2015
5 STAR rating
Good dense bright purple. The bouquet demonstrates a brooding intensity, not much detail but potentially very exciting. High class fruit here, acidity beautifully integrated, well judged oak as well, and an extra succulence at the back of the palate.

The 2015 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has abundant red fruit on a pure, seductive nose whose aromas coil themselves around your senses and whisk you all the way to Burgundy. The precise, medium-bodied palate offers sappy red berry fruit, perfectly judged acidity and a pure, rounded, caressing finish that might just benefit from a little more tension. Maybe that lack of bite knocks off a point or two, but otherwise, impressive and delicious. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.

Rich, dramatic and modern, the 2015 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru offers up a lavish bouquet of black cherries, dark wild berries, espresso roast and creamy new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and concentrated, with an abundance of fine but chewy tannins, a tight-knit core and a long, savory finish. It's a powerful, stylized wine that's out to make an impression, but it has the substance and underlying seriousness to back it up. 2020 - 2035
