2006 Clos de la Roche from LLM - "It's hard to think of many wines of its vintage that can compare with this" - WA

March 6, 2017

We have been lucky to taste Clos de la Roche 2006 from Armand Rousseau and Ponsot over the weekend, stunned by both of them which we think 2006 would be a vintage that we have overlooked. In 2006 the Burgundy red have wonderful fruit purity and freshness. They are serious wines that worth keeping and I am sure Clos de la Roche produces consistently under the best producers.

 

Lucien Le Moine - a micro-negotiant who has produced numerous 95+ pts wines in recent years, would be a name behind historic Leroy or Armand Rousseau, but in quality perspective it is absolutely well. We are able to offer a case of Clos de la Roche 2006 which has the same 94 pts with Domaine Leroy and outscored Armand Rousseau. Back vintages from Lucien Le Moine are difficult to find due to their very limited production and heavily hunted by Burgundy collectors, with Clos de la Roche 2006 stepping into his drinking window and we are sure this will be great:

Peat and white pepper pungently accent scents of rhubarb and blackberry in the nose of Saumoa's 2006 Clos De La Roche, which then offers a correspondingly invigorating tactile impingement, like a fine-grit sandpaper of pepper and stones swathed in richly-textured yet tart fruit. An animal dimension is just beginning to rear its handsome head, it seems, but it will take a big animal to make conspicuous waves in this viscous pool of fruit. For sheer sappy intensity, palpable sense of extract, and grip, it's hard to think of many wines of its vintage that can compare with this. Will it gain refinement with time in bottle? Certainly nobody able to acquire any should anticipate fewer than ten or a dozen years of excitement.
