Clos de la Roche, Domaine Armand Rousseau 2017
An overtly floral and markedly earthy nose is quite restrained if exceptionally pretty with its cool array of red and blue pinot fruit scents laced with hints of leather and herbal tea. There is terrific vibrancy to the slightly more muscular large-scaled flavors that culminate in a linear and beautifully delineated finish that really firms up as it sits on the palate. This taut, youthfully austere and very serious effort is very much built-to-age and is going to need at least half a dozen years to unwind and 20+ to reach its full potential. Drink 2037+
