    September 22, 2016 - Au nez on est sur les fraises des champs avec une petite pointe de fumée. En bouche, les fraises et les cerises sont à l'avant-plan, puis à l'arrière de discrets arômes de terre. Il y a une rondeur qui plaît beaucoup, mais contrebalancée par une belle minéralité. L'élevage est discret, et la longueur impressionnante pour le niveau. Le vin le plus équilibré de cette appellation que j'ai bu jusqu'à maintenant.

    August 2, 2016 - Ja, Ja Babymord ;-). Musste aber sein ;-) ... da die anderen aus waren, leider. Der war zwar noch recht kantig. Seine typische Rousseau Klarheit und gezügelte Kraft zeigten sich schon in beachtlicher Weise. Wenn auch total jung, dennoch großartig!

    March 27, 2016 - Bright pink red, lots of earth with red berries and strawberries, great purity, approachable now, lovely, really pretty and elegant but I would give this at least 2 more years

    December 23, 2015 - Christmas Eve "Eve" or Twas the Night Before the Night Before with Some Really Great Wines (St. Genevieve, Mpls, MN): Dark red color. Slow-O for 2.5hrs. Drank 1 glass over 45 minutes. Nice red berries, crushed rocks, great texture, raspberry, sou bois, youthful.

    December 23, 2015 - This is a step behind the 2010 but still extremely promising. Showing a bit more primary at this stage. Still has the Rousseau purity of fruit and elegance. No hard edges here but took a back seat tonight to a stunning WOTN, for me, 2009 Rousseau Charmes Chambertin.
