Domaine Hubert Lignier Clos de la Roche 2020
Aromas of dark berries, baking chocolate, forest floor, spices and plums introduce the 2020 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru, a full-bodied, layered and multidimensional wine that's deep and concentrated, with lively acids, ripe tannins and a long, saline finish. Still primary after a year's élevage, it's built to age.
The 2020 Clos-de-la-Roche Grand Cru has a beautifully-defined bouquet with violet-infused black cherry and raspberry fruit, just a hint of orange pith emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fleshy and ripe with a touch of white pepper and clove towards the finish. The manner in which this builds in the mouth is thrilling, yet it remains utterly composed from start to end.
