1999 Domaine Armand Rousseau Père et Fils Chambertin

Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

1/9/2013 - Dave Dalluge wrote: 99 points

Same bottle as Chablis28. I never wrote a note on this, but after a great 2001 Rousseau Chambertin earlier this week, I thought I should at least document the '99s greatness. This bottle was pure pleasure, and showing much better than my previous tasting in 2009. Soaring nose, lithe and elegant on the palate and packed with flavor. I thought this was every bit as good as the '99 La Tache which is one of my favorites of all time. I suspect I'll never get to try this again, but well stored bottles should drink well for many, many years.

It's not fully awake at first but develops very nice at this moment. Few hours after removing the cork, it's very complex and so good indeed. No doubt why the price is going up like hell.

If I could, I should buy more and more !!

93-94/100

My second go at this beauty (the first was over five years ago). As great as it was then, it is even greater now. The color is a pure red. The nose delivers thrilling aromas of red fruit and spice. Equally great on the palate, with beautiful red fruit and spice and a flawless texture -- the epitome of elegance in a wine. Flavors burst across the palate from the initial attack through the long, lingering (and very satisfying) finish. This is drinking really well now, but should go from strength to strength for many more years now. Thanks so much to Siggy for sharing this beautiful wine!

Ripe and very sweet on the nose. Black fruit, almost prune like. Pure and finessed on the palate, but again, just a bit too sweet. Seemed more aged in appearance than I would have thought.

Morel Dinner with Big Red & White Burgs and Champagne (L'Etoille du Nord, Bayport, MN): Dark red color. PNP, drank 1 glass over 2hr plus. Another OMG moment, incredible nose; perfumed to the hilt, red fruits, sweet fruit, beautifully floral, sandalwood. The palate offers an array of red fruits, pure and longer than long, so persistent, wow, sour fruits, minerals that drive the finish, tangy - amazing acidity. The tannins are fine and ready. Fantastic!!! 95+ to 96pts.

Still quite primary in nature, exhibited an attractive mix of dark fruit, sap, sweet spices, earth, and hints of wood. While balanced it is all a bit too intense and in your face. But I suspect this will age well given the diversity and intensity of flavor. Needs at least 5 years in my opinion

Started out a little slow but picked up speed after one hour. Nice dark fruit on the nose and palate. Dry earth and slightly games notes on the nose translate to a pleasant contrast between light and dark on the palate.

2009 Domaine Armand Rousseau Père et Fils Clos de la Roche

Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

5/7/2015 - William Kelley Likes this wine: 91 points

The 2009 Rousseau Clos de la Roche is a very fragrant, pretty wine, bursting from the glass with an expressive bouquet of griotte cherry, strawberry, mustard seed, coco and herb tones. On the palate the wine is sappy and open for inspection, with juicy fruit and just a touch of back-end austerity (hail?) on the lightly tannic, mineral finish. It's hard to prognosticate how this might age, but its heady bouquet is already very alluring.

The colour is showing some maturity: garnet with a touch of brown. On the palate, it is very elegant, smooth and quite full, with attractive raspberry and cherry fruit, some secondary, slightly vegetal, notes and good length. A stylish wine, which is at its peak now.

2001 Gevrey-Chambertin Grand Cru Dinner (Kheam Hock Road): We were transported to Burg heaven with this last bottle. We had already gone through a fantastic line-up by this point int the evening, so it is really saying something that this was unanimously voted the wine of the night. The Rousseau Chambertin that came may have been amazing, but there was just something a little extra about the Clos de Beze. It had a prettier nose than Chambertin, more feminine, with pure aromas of red cherries and dried flowers and a gentle flush of spice, all traced with a little whiff of toasty oak. Absolutely gorgeous stuff. In the mouth, it was soft and seductive, with velvety tannins and absolutely melting acidity draped over a delicious core of sweet cherries and berries. Perfectly integrated and complete and impeccably balanced, I could have sipped this all night. However, it was the ethereal clarity of the wine that really got to me – this was purity personified, almost crystalline in its clarity and breathaking transparency. Great finish too – long and absolutely effortless, full of seductive feminine wiles, with perfumed notes of flowers and spice and a tiny little touch of earthiness pulling away with just a little grip right at the end. Wow, wow and wow! This was everything you would want a Clos Beze to be. A lithe beauty, lighter than the Chambertin, but clearer, cleaner and purer; a wonderful, wonderful wine. Great now, it may be even better in a couple of years time.

2001 Gevrey-Chambertin Grand Cru Dinner (Kheam Hock Road): Wow. As good as the wines in the previous flights were, there was an immediate step-up in class once we reached the Rousseau Chambertin and Beze pair. What a wonderful nose this had, with dried earth and spice, deep draws of red cherries and flowers, and then a hint of fresh herb and a bit of menthol. An entrancing bouquet, but it was really on the palate where the wine took-off. This was just wonderful, sinewy and graceful at the same time as a great Chambertin should be, it married juicy acidity and a strong structure of fine tannins strong to beautifully pure flavours of red cherries and berries, orange peel and a little bit of earth, all perfectly packed into a beautifully integrated whole. The finish was long and graceful, filling the mouth in a seemingly neverending flow of Gevrey goodness. This was a tremendous wine – deep and powerful, yet effortlessly elegant, showing a wonderful clarity throughout. It is almost there I think, just needing that little bit of time to gain some complexity and to push it into greatness. I would love to drink this again in say 3-4 years. 95+

2001 Gevrey-Chambertin Grand Cru Dinner (Kheam Hock Road): Very enjoyable. This played the pretty teenage girl to the Clos St Jacques’ rather adult, more masculine reserve and strength. It had such an attractive nose, pure Gevrey, with a little touch of wet earth and then lots of pretty notes of red-fruit flecked by a nice dash of spice and just a little twist of herb. Rather lighter scents than on the rich nose of the CSJ, but this was really quite gorgeous. The palate had a lovely deliciousness to it. It was soft and silky, with wonderfully pure flavours of red fruit and spice and a tiny touch of earth wrapped together with fresh acidity and the very finest tannins in a wonderfully integrated package. While showing a nice sappiness on the attack, the wine did lighten up quite a bit past the midpalate, where I thought it lacked a bit of Grand Cru punch. However, it certainly made up for that with its lovely openness and clarity, which made it such a fun and delicious wine to drink. I have had this three times now. The first bottle in 2008 was tight and grumpy, the second in 2012 really lovely – I am glad to say that this bottle shared more in common with the later than the former. For all its forwardness here, there was just a little chew of tannins at the back-palate, which suggested that the wine can go on for sometime yet. I would not delay if you have a few bottles of this though – it is showing well and drinking ridiculously yummily.

2001 Gevrey-Chambertin Grand Cru Dinner (Kheam Hock Road): The first of the reds, this was quite a start. It had a beautiful nose, with dark cherries riding on a backdrop of earth, spice and wet stone. With time, some savoury notes of meat stock and umami started drifting out alongside the fruitier notes. A rich, heady nose; on the darker side of Gevrey, but very lovely. I really liked the wine on the palate as well. It showed lovely clarity and freshness, with its rich dark cherry notes ringing with energy, but also touched with a classic Clos St Jacques coolness and undergirded by a nice, stony minerality. Past the midpalate, the wine seemed to ease into a long, gentle finish, but this quickly gave was a to a nice strong grip of fine tannins. I really liked this wine. It was very complete, at once having tons of strength and yet also to a clarity of fruit that I have enjoyed in the best 2001s. This was much, much better than when I had it back in 2008. However, while drinking quite nicely, the structure and balance of the wine wed to a hint of CSJ austerity that is still there now makes me think that it really needs another 6-8 years more before showing at peak. Very good though – this could easily pass-off as a top Grand Cru anytime.

Peter's 40th (Summer Pavilion, Ritz Carlton, Singapore): Quite possibly the oldest Rousseau I have had. This was very nice, but was very much in keeping with my previous experiences with Rousseau’s Clos de la Roches – always good, but never quite at the standard of the house’s other Gevrey Grand Crus. There was a lovely clarity on the nose, with soft red fruited scents wed to more exotic notes of dried longans and boiled peanuts, and then a bit of meat, a touch of earth and mineral, dashes of herb and spice, all wreathed in a little floral note. Complex and pretty – this was a really nice, rather unique bouquet. The palate shared some of that lovely sense of clarity suggested on the nose, with juicy flavours of dark cherries and gummy blackberries flecked with herbs and spices. There was lots of citrusy acidity on this, quite reminiscent of kumquats and dried limes, all lending the wine a lovely clarity and freshness. Neat little finish too, trailing away with a charming kiss of herb and spice and gentle floral notes. A delicious, if not quite superlative wine, drinking quite at peak.

Lovely nose of red and black fruit, earth and meat. More iron and meat on the palate but dominated by pure and cleaners and black fruit. Great depth and medium finish. Just not enough detail and finesse to be a great Rousseau

Beautiful. Starts out still primary, with a gush of fruit and oak seasoning, but very luxe oak seasoning as you would expect. Really comes into its own with the second glass, when it absorbs all the oak and the texture turns to silk. This is remarkably finessed and feminine. At Heartland.

Kel's Birthday - Wine and Poker Night (Kat and Yuwen's): Simply lovely – this was a wonderful Gevrey-Chambertin village, and drinking quite at peak. It had a lovely nose, with sweet shades of red cherries, creamy raspberry ripple and fragrant floral notes underpinned by more masculine Gevrey scents of earth and meat and mineral and a little dash of spice. The palate had a juicy red fruitedness to it, with lovely gobs of cherries and berries seasoned with little hints of spice and mineral. This was very full and generous for a straight Gevrey, with a depth and scale that seemed to perch somewhere between village and 1er Cru level. While the tannins had softened to a nice velvety robe, there was still enough structure to give the wine some texture as it moved into a nicely long finish seasoned with another dash of spice. Delicious stuff – this was pure juicy satisfaction.

Drank over 3 hours. Initially very shy on the nose and really only started to get going in the final 45min. I wish I made this last longer. Subtle, but precise and wonderfully finessed notes of red fruit, dried roses, spice and touch of earth and dark fruit in the background. Pure, primary, elegant and quite detailed on the palate. Nice, fine grained tannin on the light and airy, yet powerful finish. This is a study in power with out weight, and it is clear this wine needs much more time.
