“The 2011 Clos de la Roilette is a glorious bottle in the making, offering up a deep and sappy nose of red and black cherries, pomegranate, a touch of cocoa, lovely herb tones, dark soil nuances and a hint of cedar in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, very pure and full-bodied, with a quite formidable spine of tannin for this bottling, a sappy core of fruit, moderate acids and stunning length and grip on the still very primary finish. Like most of the top 2011s, this vintage of Clos de la Roilette will demand at least a few years in the cellar to really start to blossom, but should prove to be very long-lived and an outstanding wine once it softens up a bit. Impressive juice. (drink 2015-2035)—View From the Cellar, Sep/Oct 2012 (rating: 93)
