April 28, 2016 - Rousseau dinner at Jade Palace. Started off with this nice matured village. Good floral like nose, with violets, cassis, blueberries, smoke and roast meat. Rather lean on the palate, with a lack of ripeness and intensity for an 02. Decent fruit and structure, with balanced acidity and fruit, meats, soy and earth. Good for its classification, but not really worth the price tag these days.

August 26, 2015 - Bellissimo rosato scintillante che trasuda pulizia e precisione. Perfetta corrispondenza visiva-gusto-olfattiva. Al naso è fresco, quasi primario, sa di fragoline di bosco e brezza primaverile. La bocca è sottile, scorrevole, precisissima. L' acidità è viva, ma non tagliente, e solo in chiusura fa capolino il legno regalando un finale quasi asciutto, che manca giustamente della progressione e della masticabilità di un cru superiore.
Sembra un vino che ha dieci anni di meno. Bevuta di grande classe e fattura, crea dipendenza.
p.s. Gli Chambolle di Roumier sono di altra categoria, anyway!

March 6, 2015 - A private lunch (Restaurant Hof van Cleve ***, Kruishoutem, Belgium): Mature, aromatic, silky, rose-like fragrance, good depth, medium weight, elegant and flowing, fresh style, ripe fruit and sous-bois, firm-ish tannins speak of its terroir, perfect balance, good intensity and length.

November 22, 2014 - Medium red, with the slightest hint of a brown rim. Nose was very minerally, some wet rocks, freshly cut grass, with wild strawberries and some scorched earth. Palate was slightly tannic, with very good acidity and a decent amount of wild strawberries and cherries. Length was lacking but very pleasant and round.

December 24, 2013 - Was very relieved to see a lighter colored wine as I've suffered many big, extracted burgs lately that never seem to be in the "right place". Nice mellow color showing some age with the slightest orange glint just before the outermost clear rim. Classy nose of funky sous bois and secondary red cherry fruit. Not at all soft and mushy as brisk acid keeps a sense of freshness and plenty of life left. A real class AC bottle from a top-notch producer. Proof that over-ripeness and over-extraction don't make for great burgundy.

(Rousseau Armand Gevrey-Chambertin) Medium cherry-red colour. The nose soars, high-toned and fresh, with violets and cherry-skinned fruit over toast from the creamy oak base. Some fat, fresh red-shaded fruit on the palate with a creamy texture. This is, at best, only medium weight, but there's super purity and detail, the fruit is really quite punchy on the mid-palate. I prefer the finish on the 2001 but this presents itself really well - I'll also buy a couple more of these. One negative from the last drops, the nose becomes quite estery and not that pleasant - quite a contrast to the 2001.
