Domaine Pierre Amiot et Fils Grand Cru Clos de la Roche 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Domaine Pierre Amiot Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has a bright, fragrant nose of black fruits, cherry, spice and toast and sweet fruit on the palate. Very expressive and pretty. Super-smooth texture and long generous finish. The wines can be drunk with pleasure now and will cellar for many years.Vines 20 to 55 years old. Low yields. Lutte Raisonn_e farming. One racking by hand. Not fined or filtered.Clos de la Roche is an east-facing vineyard at the northern end of Morey-Saint-Denis, just south of the Grand Crus of Gevery-Chambertin. To the south is Clos Saint-Denis. It is known and possibly named for the big limestone boulders in the vineyard. The marlstone reddish silty clay soil is rich with calcium carbonate and lime and is very thin. The roots grow through only a couple of feet of this rugged top soil and then struggle through many feet of limestone to reach moisture. These struggles lead to a wine with tremendous ageing potential. Similar to other Morey vineyards, there is no evidence that it was a true Clos, but perhaps it was walled in some way in the times of the Romans or the Cistercians who developed these vineyards.
