Very nice pinot fruit, creamy, intense; it's a young wine, of course, much to young, but quite forward and open, very clean with a good balance. Will probably close down soon and reermerge witg much more complexity, but this does conforim the vintages character, it is foir early drinking, surely. With Philippe Cambie at Søllerød Kro
Rousseau 2011 by Luis Gutierrez (Enoteca Barolo - Madrid): Opaque nose when opening. Floral with time. Just needs time to express what's inside. Chalk. Creamy, elegant, no a singe doubt is a young GC but promising and offering some good feelings where this gem gonna be in ten years. Not aggressive at all. People's choice.
Nariz opaca al principio. Con tiempo es floral. Sólo necesita un par de horas para expresar lo que tiene dentro. Pizarra. Cremosa, elegante, que es un joven GC no cabe duda pero prometedor y dando algunas buenas sensaciones de donde esta gema va a estar en diez años. Para nada agresiva. La que gustó a la gente.
An interesting wine and a paradox in a bottle- I found the nose to be very expressive and delightful with lots of spice, coffee cake, chicory and lots of berries but the palate was the most closed of the Rousseau wines, with basic wet earth and cooked black fruits. I wonder if the palate will open up over time? This is a wine to watch because, if the palate does flesh out, it could be amazing.
