Food: Chinese Duration: 2 hours Condition: Perfect Aroma: Blueberry, red date, earthiness Note: Armand Rousseau is one of my favorite makers in Burgundy. 1993 is an excellent year for many burgundy wines, this one is pretty good, but not great. I can see the limitations of Charmes chambertin in this wine. CC lacks the depth in C and CCdB but also couldn't deliver the fineness in LC and MC. I personally haven't really enjoyed a good bottle of CC except for the Dominique Laurent 2006 which to be honest was more like VR than GC. Nevertheless, this bottle still feels pretty energetic, I personally think that it can be drank between now and 2022 without a problem. Problem of CC is that the earthiness is very distinctive yet cannot integrate well with the fruits.
Sweet red fruit, supple texture. Silky, tart cherry, spice, earth notes all working in harmony. Resolved and rounded palate. So elegant and pure. Absolutely drop dead gorgeous wine that would have been the star of most nights if not for the dozen or so other Rousseaus on the table. Excellent wine. Drinking a pointe.
