Tasting Notes:

94 points Wine Advocate

The 2011 Clos de la Roche has a wonderful, vibrant, generous bouquet that is actually more akin to a Bonnes-Mares with its precocious, effervescent red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins on the opening, supple in the mouth, well-balanced with great precision on the finish. This is one of the best 2011s from Louis Jadot. (NM) (8/2013)

91-93 points Int’l Wine Cellar

Good medium red. Complex, soil-driven aromas of cranberry, redcurrant, brown spices, mocha and menthol. The palate combines almost liqueur-like berry sweetness with notes of botanical herbs and pepper. Very young but already plush and fine-grained in the middle palate. Tightens up considerably on the back end. (ST) (2/2013)

90-93 points Burghound

A pungent if highly complex nose offers up a wide range of aromas that include wood toast, menthol, tar, ripe dark berry, plum and warm earth. There is excellent richness to the solidly well-concentrated medium weight plus flavors that possess plenty of volume before terminating in a muscular and firm finish of striking perseverance. (4/2013)

92 points John Gilman

The Jadot Clos de la Roche is a purchased wine, but it hails from the same two vignerons which the domaine has been buying from for many decades. The 2011 has turned out beautifully, offering up a classic bouquet of black cherries, plums, game, dark chocolate, lovely soil tones and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and quite plush on the attack, with the elegance of the vintage very much in evidence, very good depth at the core, ripe tannins and a long, focused and complex finish. Perhaps there is just a tiny lack of backend energy vis à vis the domaine’s own 2011 grand crus, but this is high class juice that will age very well indeed. (Drink between 2022-2050) (11/2012)
