Tasting Notes

The 2015 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru comes from 0.65-hectare in Montluisants and 0.25-hectare in Les Fremières; it matured entirely in new oak, including 25% whole bunch fruit. It has a very succinct and harmonious bouquet with layers of ripe red berries, cold limestone, a touch of violet and orange blossom. So pure and refined. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, very harmonious in the mouth, quite linear compared to recent vintages, but exuding precision and intensity on the finish that lingers long in the mouth. It leaves a saline residue that urges you back for another sip. This is an outstanding Clos de la Roche that will give 25+ years of pleasure. Chapeau Laurent et Hubert.

Score: 96/98Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (228), December 2016

As is almost always the case chez Lignier this is the best wine in the range though aromatically it is all but mute at present. On the plus side is the wonderful texture to the sleek, intense and muscular middle weight plus flavors that possess focused power and a fine bead of minerality that continues onto the mouth coating and beautifully persistent finish. This beauty is very backwards but everything is in place such that it should amply repay extended cellaring. Drink: 2030+

Score: 92/94Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (65), January 2017

The 2015 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru from Domaine Hubert Lignier is one of the high points of the vintage, wafting from the glass with aromas of red and black fruits, pencil lead, cinnamon, cedar, blood orange, dark chocolate and violets. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, sappy and stunningly complete, its formidable chassis of tannin entirely cloaked in a bottomless core of fruit, striking for its mouth-filling amplitude and magical alliance of richness and energy. This will require a decade of bottle age, and ideally more, to realize all its immense potential. Ten-and-a-half barrels were produced.
