Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Cuvée Vieilles Vignes, which was fermented with 25% whole cluster this year, offers up a deep and complex nose of plums, roasted venison, black cherries, fruit preserve, pencil lead, dark chocolate, licorice and a subtle framing of new wood. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, supple and multidimensional, with a deep core of ripe fruit, rich tannins and an intense, sapid finish. This is a classic expression of Ponsot's singular, late-picked style, and it should make for decadent, dramatic drinking after a decade or so in the cellar. Drink Date: 2025-2050.
