2016 Côte-Rôtie Les Schistes, Clusel Roch

Guillaume’s Cuvée Classique is composed from parcels in the lieux-dits Viallière, Grandes Places, Verenay and Champon. As ever, tasting each constituent part was a joy, and the way they come together is remarkable: floral elegance, juicy berry fruit, then power and intensity with a deft hand. This is classic and exquisite.

2016 Côte-Rôtie Les Schistes, Clusel Roch
Domaine Clusel-Roch

The wines of Gilbert Clusel and Brigitte Roch - hence the domaine’s name - are known for their elegance and pure fruit. The couple started the domaine in 1989 by themselves, with little more than the vines planted by Gilbert’s grandfather before the second World War. With gradual investment in a modern cellar, they continued in the vineyards and began to produce wine organically in 2002. It’s now their son, Guillaume, who takes the lead, whose wines leap to ever greater heights.
