Description

Situated at the foot of grand cru Clos-Saint-Denis, La Riotte is a cru full of small stones, and it possesses a distinctively vivid, tight-grained minerality from which all other elements of the wine seem to flow. Beneath the dominating calcareous elements of this 2017 are gorgeous red fruits, wispy spices, and a notable floral character; it’s a formidable wine that nonetheless refrains from drawing attention to its power. This vintage was vinified with 20% whole clusters and aged in one-quarter new wood for 18 months.
