The Armand Rousseau 2013 Clos de la Roche is a masterful expression of this revered Grand Cru vineyard. With its deep ruby hue, it captivates the eye, promising a sensory journey. The nose is greeted by an enchanting bouquet, where vibrant red fruits mingle with delicate floral notes, intertwined with hints of earth, spice, and a subtle touch of oak. On the palate, it reveals a symphony of flavors, with ripe cherries, raspberries, and cranberries dancing alongside savory nuances and a whisper of minerality. The texture is velvety-smooth, with finely integrated tannins providing structure and balance. As the wine lingers, the finish unfolds gracefully, leaving a lingering impression of elegance and finesse. This Clos de la Roche epitomizes the signature style of Armand Rousseau, showcasing the pedigree of this legendary domaine and the terroir of this exceptional vineyard.

Robert Parker - (93-95) Points

"The 2013 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru, which will contain some new oak although I tasted from a used barrel, has a tightly knit bouquet that at the moment is less expressive than the Mazis-Chambertin. The palate is crisp and pure, quite tensile, with a spiciness that becomes more prominent toward the fleshy, harmonious finish. Curiously, even from a used barrel the texture feels as if there is some new oak, but that is just the concentration of fruit coming through. Frédéric enthused about this wine and I suspect that it may surpass my expectations once in bottle."

Antonio Galloni - 90 Points

"The 2013 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru was impressive from barrel, but in bottle I found it coming up a bit short. Firstly, it is extremely reduced on the nose and after two or three hours there is little change. It is dense and muscular, very concentrated in style (perhaps atypically for this cuvée from Rousseau) and yet the finish feels a bit chunky and lacks finesse. Yes, it is too young, but here it is easily surpassed by Cathiard's Malconsorts. Tasted at 21 Boulevard restaurant in Beaune."
