Tasting Notes

The nose is deep and quite fine, offering up notes of black cherries, beetroot, mustard seed, incipient notes of venison, woodsmoke, coffee and a bit of sous bois. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and complex, with moderate acids, but good depth in the mid-palate, fine balance, and excellent length and grip on the moderately tannic finish. In comparison to the Dujac, the wine is just a touch four-square for Clos de la Roche, but this wine has fine grand cru depth and real sweetness to the fruit. If it only had a bit more acidity to brighten up the palate and add even more structural integrity, it would be truly outstanding. Nevertheless, this is a very strong Clos de la Roche chez Rousseau. - John Gilman, tasted (2/2004)
