1999 Guy Castagnier, Clos de la Roche try to find this wine...
Medium, medium-plus colour. Aromatically fresh with good depth and an almost shiny, glossy effect from the dark fruit nose. Super acidity that really extends itself into the finish and pushes the finish longer. Still rather linear, the tannin is more of an after-thought, they still need a few more years once you’ve located them though. Mineral and muscled, a step-up from the (2) Petits Monts and a long way from entering a mature phase. Very good.
Rebuy – Yes

    I am starting to think this domaine is too problematic despite the potential for quality wines and the reduced tariff at which they can be had.

    I have now tried three of the 1998 Grand Crus (Clos de la Roche, Clos St. Denis & Clos Vougeot) only the Vougeot was not corked.

    Very disappointing.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
