  • Wine Advocate
    (From 2005 Vintage) "Potel's 2005 Clos de la Roche smells sweetly of cherry liqueur, blond tobacco, honey and iris. If this were a white wine if would be a nobly sweet one. Explosively intense in the mouth, with sappy, sweet cherry, quarry dust, tobacco, pungent flowers, citrus zest, and gradually emerging hints of game, it finishes with almost indelible sweetness and complexity."
  • Decanter
    (From 2005 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Deep colour, with supple, seductive fruit, fine oak and very good length, this is a serious wine, equal to many domaines' premier crus. Great value. Drink 2009-15. (SS)
  • Burghound
    (From 2005 Vintage) "Gorgeous ruby. Strong reduction blocks the nose though the flavors are very rich, full and intense with a frank, complex and serious finish that displays moderate rusticity."
