"What a wine! Beautiful savoury nuances where delicate hints of umami complement minerally red and black fruit. Incredible complexity and amazing silky texture. For me (GB), this is the wine of the vintage, showing supreme elegance in all aspects. Extremely rarely do I give 99 or 100 points to very young wines, but I could easily have broken my own rule here. Exceptional!"

"The aromas to this are so complex and spellbinding with rose petals, sandalwood and stones. Hints of almonds. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and an intense finish. Shows fantastic tension and compression. Precise line to the wine. Drink in 2022."

"Cellar Selection* Louis Jadot 2014 Clos de la Roche. The largest of the four grands crus in Morey-St-Denis, this vineyard gives the most structured wines. This bottling, with its tannins and power, is no exception. While it shows plenty of rich black, perfumed fruit, it also has an immense structure of tight tannins are balanced by juicy acidity. Drink from 2027. (RV)"

"Initially dominated by oak, this needs air to reveal the macerated cherry, strawberry, mineral and earth flavors. Tightly wound, yet the ripe fruit shows depth. Sweet fruit and dense tannins define the finish. Patience is required. Best from 2021 through 2038. 170 cases made."

"The 2014 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru, which comes from three sources, is a little more savory on the nose compared to the Clos Saint Denis, perhaps sans the same level of purity. There is more tertiary notes here, a hint of bacon fat even. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, slightly broader tannin than the Clos Saint Denis that lends it the weight, the presence, albeit without the nervosité or the mineral core expressed by the Clos Saint Denis. Very fine, but I would like to see more nuance develop during the rest of its élevage."
