Dark ruby, almost garnet. This is open right away. The nose is a blast of red fruit and brown sugar. Full bodied with high intensity. The palate is immediately coated with pure, juicy, fleshy cherry and strawberry. Some oaky spice swirls around as well, but this is a fruit lovers wine. It is bright, so I believe the acid will keep this in great shape for a while, and the tannins quite firm. Long, showy finish.

(Perrot-Minot Christophe Gevrey-Chambertin) Despite being tight at the core there is some width and hints of cream on the nose. Much more concentration and structure, but the tannin is almost as fine as the Rousseau - though to a fresher effect. I have a slight preference for this.
