Griotte Chambertin Joseph Roty 2009 (750ML)
92+ Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Good full red. Wild, reduced nose offers black raspberry, smoky minerality, pepper and oak spices, plus a leesy nuance. Even tighter in the middle than the Mazy, with a flavor of crystallized blackberry perked up on the end by peppermint and licorice notes. Strong wood tannins give the finish a slight dry edge today and will require at least six or seven years of aging. There was just a barrel and a half of this juice, one new, noted Roty; his other two grand crus aged in 90% new oak." 4/12
94 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "A ripe, pure and highly perfumed nose of extract of plum and black raspberry trimmed in discreet wood is followed by rich, full-bodied and palate staining flavors that possess excellent volume on the well-delineated and lightly mineral-inflected finish that exudes energy and punch. There is plenty of personality and this very suave and velvety effort should be terrific in time." 1/12
95+ Points, John Gilman, View From the Cellar: "The 2009 Griottes-Chambertin from Domaine Roty is another stunning wine in the making, soaring from the glass in a blaze of red and black cherries, grilled meats, coffee bean, a glorious base of chalky soil tones, woodsmoke, cedar and a classy topnote of spices. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with a sappy core, a lovely sense of reserve on the attack and great mineral drive on the backend. The finish is very, very long, laser-like and ripely."6/12
