Rousseau dinner

The Ledbury, London
Tasted Thursday, March 10, 2011 by Rupert with 574 views


David Wainwright arranged for 14 Rousseau lovers to each bring a bottle and what a line-up we had! But I was still unprepared for how wonderful these wines would be. This was, by some distance, the most awe-inspiring wine event I've been to. The Chambertins are grand, and beautiful and charming at the same time. Words cannot do these wines justice. They were just perfect.
