Clos de la Roche

Clos de la Roche grand cru

Appellation: Grand Cru
Area under vine: 0.3210 hectares (7.50 ouvrées)
Terroir: limestone soil (30 cm of earth), with a little broken stone and large blocks of stone (or roches), which gave the vineyard its name. Located at approximately 250 metres of altitude and east facing.
Grape variety: 100% Pinot Noir
When planted: 1950/1951
Vineyard: The vines are grown without the use of pesticides or insecticides, and only natural fertilizer (manure) is used. Ploughing keeps the soil loose and well-aerated, and no weed killers are applied.
Fermentation: The grapes are hand picked into small crates, sorted in the vat room and 100% destemmed. Cold fermentation for 7 days is followed by temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation with two pigeages (punching the cap) a day and maceration for 21 days.
Barrel-ageing: Aged on the lees in oak barrels (50% new) for 15 months, with late-occurring, natural, malolactic fermentation. Neither fined nor filtered. Racked and bottled by gravity flow.
Tasting notes: Clos de la Roche is deeply-coloured with a powerful bouquet of red and black fruit (wild cherry and blackcurrant). The wine has fine structure and good ageing potential. It is nevertheless extremely attractive when young thanks to ripe tannin and well-defined flavours.
