This is a wine that I have enjoyed many times and it is one of those rare grands crus that has shown magnificently from day one and has never missed a beat since. Earthy yet exquisitely complex nose showing more than a trace of secondary aromas. The flavor profile is deep and broad with sap, wet earth, iron, minerals and a pure, intense, terrifically long finish. An outstanding Clos de la Roche that is enjoyable now though it will continue to hold for many years.
The 1993 Clos de la Roche from Jacques Seysses is starting to get very close to full maturity, but another few years of bottle age would certainly cause no undesirable effects. This was a very short crop for the domaine in this vineyard, with the Clos de la Roche only producing twenty-eight hectoliters per hectare in 1993. The bouquet is truly stunning, soaring from the glass in a blaze of red and black plums, dark chocolate, gamebird, a very complex base of soil tones, woodsmoke and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and sappy at the core, with its full-bodied format both vibrant and soil-driven, with a very long, transparent and gently tannic finish. This is just blossoming beautifully, but there is more to come from this stage of development and I would be inclined to let it sleep just a couple more years in the cellar, so that this wave of complexity can fully come front and center. It is a great wine. 2020-2060+.
