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.
At LQV in Wan Chai Hong Kong - Fresh and charming with loads of minerality. It won't last forever but I suspect I would be pleasantly surprised by its longevity if I could resist drinking it. A real class act for a village wine.
