Gérard Raphet Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2005

$185

Good bright, dark red. Spicy candied cherry, rose petal and clove on the nose. Dense, sweet and lush, with lovely depth to the flavors of spicy strawberry, cherry and minerals. Even fuller on the back end, but by no means overly sweet or a blockbuster. The wine's fat is nicely framed by an edge of acidity and some sweet oak tannins. With extended aeration, this showed classic Clos de la Roche notes of smoky red fruits and dried flowers. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media

Probably the most Morey out of the three. Classic red/dark cherry nose with wild/sauvage characteristics, but relatively cool for the vintage. Tannins are well integrated and mouth feel is velvety. Only had this underrated producer fewer than five times and I'm starting to like them more and more. High QPR as well.
