1999 Clusel-Roch “Grandes Places” Côte-Rôtie

Very impressive wine, made in the reduction-sauce style. This great vineyard got creamed by hail during the spring, so not much was made, maybe 50 cases. If you can ever get a chance to taste it, you should- it’s freakishly huge, and in a novel way. Destined to be a classic of its type.
