Reviews 95 points Wine Advocate "Lignier's 2018 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru lives up to its fine performance in barrel, wafting from the glass with aromas of dark berries, cherries and orange rind mingled with truffle, espresso roast, loamy soil and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, concentrated and seamless, it's layered and vibrant, with a deep core of pure fruit that largely conceals impressive reserves of fine, powdery tannins. Concluding with a long and saline finish... (WK)" 95 points John Gilman "...offering up ripe and very pure fruit, great soil signature and a firm, refined chassis of tannin to carry it far into the future. The bouquet wafts form the glass in a complex blend of plums, red and black cherries, a touch of beetroot, gamebird, bonfire, mustard seed, marvelous soil tones and cedar. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and shows off beautiful mid-palate depth, with ripe, chewy and well-integrated tannins, great balance and grip and a very long, tangy and nascently complex finish. A terrific wine. (JG)"
