Domaine Pierre Amiot - Clos de la Roche Grand Cru - 2010
is currently backordered. You may still purchase it now but we won't be able to ship it until it becomes available again.
Region : Burgundy
Appellation : Clos de la Roche
Vintage : 2010
Varietal : Pinot Noir
Estate : The Amiots have been making wine in the Cote de Nuits for 5 generations. They make stunning Morey-Saint-Denis Reds including Grand Cru, Premier Cru and Villages wines.
They practice low yields in the vineyard (25-35 hectoliters per hectare), lute raisonnée (eliminating, when possible, the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides), de-stemming and a 20 day maceration of the berries. The wine is kept on its lees until the one racking just before bottling. The wines are not fined or filtered.
All of this extreme care of the land and berries along with little to no disturbance of the wine in barrel leads to extremely smooth wines.
Tasting Notes : Its name comes from the topography of this previously “enclosed” vineyard, which our ancestors called “sur la roche” because it looks like it is planted on rock. Another theory is that there was a boulder here that was attached to the local Celtic cult. Domaine Amiot has had this appellation for 4 generations.
Aromas of truffles, cherries, roses, spices, violets, nuts, and blueberries.
Powerful and well-balanced, this is a wine with great complexity and exceptional length.
