TN: 1966 Domaine Louis Remy Clos de la Roche

  • 1966 Domaine Louis Remy Clos de la Roche - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos de la Roche Grand Cru (3/4/2017)
    Bought a year ago from a local none wine auction but with some serious wines with a very good appearance. Beautiful bright shy red with a hint of yellowish brown at the rim. Starts shy, a hint of red cherry and strawberry, smoke meat, sous bois, cedar and earth. With an hour of air, essence of strawberry and raspberry, sous bois, a slight hint of VA that adds the sweetness, sautéed porcini, cedar, sap and earth. The palate to die for, essence of strawberry, though never had the pleasure to dine at Alinea, I imagine it is the flavor that Chef Achatz could have concocted. It is like mixing air, silk, oil and water with a drop of sweet strawberry essence. Strong presence of acidity and earthly mineral, a hint of VA and a subtle seamless long essence of strawberry driven finish. The fruit and all other elements have faded over time and a hint of VA has developed. However, there is no oxidation and the wine is fresh and energetic. It is not for everyone but if you love the expression of fully mature Burgundy, this bottle would have pleased you. It did for me! (95 pts.)

Sounds great to Me! 1966 Burgs are strong.
Had a Chambolle Musigny, Charmes, Mähler Besse, some months ago, also a treat.(Two left.)
