Amiot-Bertrand Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 1976 (4291)

France - Burgundy - Cote de Nuits - Morey-St-Denis
Pinot Noir

It can be hard to trace family trees through Burgundy but I am told the maker is related to The Amiots in Morey-St-Denis and Amiot-Servelle in Chambolle-Musigny.


1976 was a big powerful vintage with plenty of colour and stuffing. The tannins have ensured the wines have aged nicely and softened over the decades. From my experience 1976 is a vintage that matured beautifully with time and is now drinking very well.


Grand Crus like this that have been cellared in Burgundy all their life should be superb. Grab a bottle or two for a special occasion!

These bottles are in such good condition that I couldn't resist opening one. If you were to look at old tasting notes or vintage descriptions you will find that the 1976 reds were described as tannic and tough. How wrong that is today. Forty years in the bottle has seen the wines soften and gain complexity and charm. For me it is the go-to vintage of the 1970's as unlike many of the more highly rated 1978's, the 1976 reds have retained freshness and life, no doubt due to the tannins that were once seen as overt.

 

Sourced from a French cellar, this Clos de la Roche is still very dark in colour with a little development on the rim. The nose is rich, plummy and full of Burgundy aromatics - earth, roses, spice and berries - a touch of animale. The palate is concentrated, with serious fruit - unquestionably Grand Cru weight. The tannins are ripe and the wine finishes long and interesting. At 42 years of age the wine is at its peak with no sign of fading soon. A super bottle of aged Burgundy.
