Domaine de Roally Vire-Clesse 2016 image
CLASSIC WHITE BURGUNDY/TERROIR/REAL SENSE OF ORIGIN
Posted Apr 17, 2019[Verified]

"This is among the best white Burgundies I have had below $50. It has a real sense of origin. Indeed, the terroir is what keeps it focused on where it is from: as far from California as we can get, and much better for it. A classic in the making."

REAL SANGIOVESE...VERY PURE...AS GOOD AS BASIC SANGIOVESE GETS.

"Very pure expression of chianti. Brilliant with bisteca, as it should be."

NOT ENOUGH PINOT CHARACTER.
Posted Mar 7, 2018[Verified]

"Fruit is too dark. Flabby wine...better with food but hardly impressive. Should not have bought a case. Tasting notes on wine have become watered down."

MEDIOCRE PINOT

"This has a little Pinot character, but it has a stewed, almost burnt quality that is off. Would not buy again."

NEEDS FOOD
Posted Oct 26, 2016[Verified]

"2011 was difficult in Tuscany. This wine has a very dark plum character. If you are looking for bright sangiovese, look to the Monsanto 2012, which is a knockout. With food, however, this works well."
