Grape, green apple, lemon and some spice. Acid is at the fore of the palate, there is only medium depth to the fruit. Does have some interest overall though I wish the depth was a touch better.

Floral, peach and lemon on the nose. Palate is quite ripe, with a clean finish and medium length. Drinking nicely.

Ruby to deep garnet. Tangy cherry fruit, a pinch of caramel and some developing sous-bois. This has out on weight in the past there years. A sweetness to the fruit. Lovely, and engaging. ***1/2

(Decanted two hours.) It has been nearly two years since I drank this wine. It still has an amazingly dark and deep color that looks more like cabernet than pinot noir. With much coaxing, it delivers up rich aromas of dark berries, strawberries, mocha, funk and menthol. There is also a floral note that is very pleasing. Full-bodied, it has a weighty, extracted and ripe mouthfeel but without a trace of sweetness. Big flavors of cherry, strawberry, dark chocolate, fresh beef, mint, minerals and moist soil are beautifully delineated by a tangy streak of acidity. And the fine tannins remain formidable. This is still a very young wine. However, the extraordinary balance of its impressive core elements suggests that an elegant yet voluptuous, long-lived wine awaits the patient. 96 points.

A higher score and a better bottle than my March experience. A nicely balanced nose of red plum, sweet spice and black raspberry. This bottle took slightly longer to unfurl but had stronger intensity. The palate also brings forest floor, and in this bottle a background smokiness.

2 bottles consistent. Not decanted. Very dark red. Nose is clean with blackberries and cherry. Medium body, fabulous concentration of ripe fruit, darker such a licorice and electrifying feel. Long and wonderful. Good for another 11 years, or more.

Birthday Dinner (2) 2014 (Jade Palace, Forum Galleria, Singapore): I have been disappointed by Ponsot’s Clos de la Roche more than once, with the wines either being too young, or shut down, or just underperforming. I have actually had this particular wine before, and thought it was good, but not great. It was really on song tonight though. It had a beautiful nose, with funky shades of boiled herbs and damp earth underneath gorgeous wafts of wild cherries and berries, and then a twist of orange peel and a nice trail of Morey spice drifting along behind. With time, a shades of herby Vermouth and sarsarapilla root aromas came out as well. Lovely. It was on the palate were the wine really impressed though. Soft, velvety tannins and bright, juicy acidity made for a really open mouthfeel. It more or less melted over the palate with beautifully pure flavours of maraschino cherries and raspberries flecked with lots of complex little nuances, showing sweet herbs, spice and bramble laced through the midpalate. There was a thick depth here, but this was also a wonderfully transparent expression, so different from the whole series of grumpy Ponsots that I have had in recent times. Nice long finish too, mellow, gentle, but deep and persistent, unfolding beautifully across the backpalate in lovely notes of dark cherries and berries, earth and herb, and a gentle spiciness twisted around a core of fresh acidity and fine tannins. This was lovely, a complete wine that was drinking wonderfully. With the depth it had and that firm structural backbone, it can probably go on for quite some time yet as well.

Still very young with a wonderful perfumed nose and lovely bright fruit soaring through on the palate. No secondary characteristics yet but superbly enjoyable now. Drank in magnum.

Classic Ponsot CdlR red and dark fruit, but with less sweet spice than other top vintages. Tannins have been well integrated at this point presenting a very smooth drinking experience. Quite refined although more focused on the fruit than on spice and secondary earthy notes than my favorite vintages.

No contest, my wine of the night. Certainly the best bottle of this that I have had. Deserving of comparisons to some of the other great 78s. Tingly spice jumps off the nose along with distinct cola aromas. Black plum, black cherry, bitterweet chocolate, and light dry earth. Background lavender and violet with air time. Elegant and engaging on the palate with alternating sweet and savory spice notes. Extremely long and evolving finish. 97+.

I rated this higher than many of my companions this evening. While not as vibrant as the 80, this offered a pleasurable and very approachable drinking experience. Graciously offered up the desired triumvirate of dark and red fruit, sweet spice and earthy notes. This will not have the longevity of the the 80.

A vintage of this wine that I had not previously experienced. The nose hits on the desired elements of dark fruit, red fruit, sweet spices, and earth. Palate with good depth of flavor and balanced fruit, acid, and smooth mature tannins. Perhaps recent a peak, this wine should still perform well for quite some time.

Light spice with background floral notes on the nose but without the depth that one expects from a Ponsot CdlR. Reasonable mouthfeel but fairly straightforward on the palate. Short finish. No glaring flaws so I expect this might have garnered a slightly higher score if not faced with the tough competition of superior vintages this evening.

Similar to the normal cuvee which this was served alongside. See those notes. VV fell somewhat short of depth of nose vs the normal cuvee.

On this evening, superior to the VV. Red cherry, red currant, fresh pine, and damp earth. Silky tannins and balanced acid complete an attractive if not overly complex picture.

A shorter finish than other vintages with this course, still a solid showing. Unlikely to improve further, I'd consume now preferably with dark savories.

I don't exactly see where the controversy comes from with other reviews. This is not an exceptional wine, but is still a well structured and balanced Clos de la Roche. More fruit and less spice than I would otherwise like, but offers a refined balance of dark fruit and tannins with gamey and forest floor secondary elements emerging.
