Some Wines from a Spring Trip to France; 4/4/2015-4/11/2015 (Paris and Burgundy): Light ruby, it certainly looked more mature than the Roumier wine. At first, all wet soil tones, then muddled red fruit, ferric tones, menthol, and finally a bit of char-now that is a complex nose! Medium weight, not at all as big as the Roumier. Subtle, sinuous fruit. Really, this is much more about the savory side of Burgundy. Excellent acidity, nothing soft or overripe about it. Wonderful development in the glass and it really gained some flesh. Another wine that was a pleasure to taste and drink even at this early juncture. Outstanding now and better with 10 more years, but this is not likely to be a 30+ year wine.
Klar, dyp rød med mild kant. Dyp, mørk og parfymert nese med toner av kirsebær, moreller, fioler og lett krydder. Mild sødme. Årgangens varme skinner svakt igjennom. Dyp, mørk og tett frukt med høy konsentrasjon og intensitet. Kraftig, men fløyelsesmyk. Frisk, vibrerende syre. Tørr utgang med med et finkornet tanninslør. Nydelig lenge med lett sødme.
Tasted with all 2009 and 2010 Clos St Jacques. Colour ruby. Not a stereotypical 2009 Burgundy. A subdued but attractive nose with spicy oak present but not dominating. Pure and ripe red and black cherry aromas, with raspberry and roses. On palate, after a sweet entry, great volume, concentration, structure and length. Well integrated, suave tannins. Lovely texture with great power. Largely a red berry flavour profile but attractive minerality. The elevage is very visible but there is the fruit weight here to carry it. The acids were also prominent but part of the overall package, still to integrate, to become something really special in 10+ years. 94.
Rousseau 2009 Horizontal Tasting: Expressive and wonderfully perfumed aromas - slate, musk, cherry, earth and floral notes. The nose draws you in but the palate keeps you there with outstanding balance and incredible detail in the fruit. A mineral note persists and stretches the palate length out. The very last sip of this spectacular wine was the best.
Extremely open, primary and powerful nose of red fruit, minerals and stems. Big and bold in the mouth with huge red and blue fruit that conceals plent of tannin. Long finish with excellent grip. This will last a long time.
