    November 7, 2016 - Past its prime. The robe is orange/brick on the edge, the mouth faded away. Aromas of forest floor, mushroom and earth, light on the palate, tanins are almost vanishing. It is a quite forward wine, certainly well made, which should have probably been consumed 5/10 years ago. Certainly not the aging potential of a Chambertin...

    April 27, 2014 - Light brown, bricking at the edges. A lot of developed aromaes with forest, moss, earth and mushrooms. Palate is also developed and is a bit thin. Think this one is past it's prime. Good though.

    February 23, 2013 - very nice villages, typical rousseau brightness, for this vintage it could have been too much acid but actually showed some roundedness which was great, nice red fruits with some cinnamon spice... victor walked around all night saying how much he loved the 'wilt chamberlain' burgundy i brought... liked by all, nice now and should last another 3 to 5 years

    December 10, 2011 - A wonderful wine to sit and enjoy over a few hours; this starts out a little thin and austere without much palate presence, but over time rounds out into a perfectly balanced, medium-weight whole conveying layers of fresh red fruits, developing leathery and sous bois elements and gentle floral accents with a delicate touch. There's a wonderful fragrance here and a glossy, polished texture that emerges with time. Outstanding wine, and I really need to drink Rousseau's wines more often.
