94 Points Robert Parker
The 2010 Clos de la Roche wafts from the glass with sweet scents of tobacco, crushed flowers and spices. Tasted after the Charmes, the Clos de la Roche comes across as decidedly feminine, but there is plenty of weightless energy being held back, at least that is the sense I get today. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035.

An intensely floral nose features notes of dried rose petal and lavender along with cool red berry fruit that is liberally laced with earth, spice and menthol nuances. The taut and muscular broad-scaled and concentrated flavors are precise, intense and explosively long on the focused and stunningly persistent finish that is youthfully austere and breathtakingly intense. This faultlessly well-balanced but very firm effort will require extended cellaring. My sense is that it will be sufficiently civilized to enjoy by 2025 but it you wish to see this superb effort at its peak, more patience still will be necessary. Drink to 2035+.
