    May 5, 2020 - holy crap. So pure clean fruit. Youthful but the fruit has age on it. Really precise and bountiful wine. Just salivating dripping fruit. There’s a bit of mint freshness that grows up on the back end. So fresh. The whole mouth just fills up with flavor.

    January 27, 2020 - A beautiful Chambertin from Rousseau. Classic balance of elegance and power. Decanted for an hour plus. Subtle signs of bricking but no secondary notes. Still developing and will wait to drink my last bottle for another 5-10 years.

    December 7, 2019 - Still quite tannic and not showing the elegant vintage. There is just not any of the signature Rousseau burst of aromatics. Maybe a shut down phase? NR

    October 11, 2019 - This needed decanting and lots of time in the glass before it really showed itself. Medium-bodied and very fine with flavors of perfectly ripe cherries and classic Gevrey minerals. The finish has this perfect mineral crunch with a lovely tautness and fantastic purity. It needs time to develop that haunting maturity this wine is known for but it's definitely in it's early drinking window with a long decant. Just fabulous material here and such a "fine" wine. 97+

Burgundy-Report

    (Rousseau Armand Chambertin) Medium-plus cherry-red. Creme brulee and red fruit presented in a very linear way. Takes a few minutes in the glass to open out, but really starts to shout 'look at me!' - mainly barrel influenced notes, coffee in the background too. The palate has an extra 'fatness' to the palate vs the Bèze, fireworks here too, they build a little more slowly but to equal effect. It's hard to make a preference here - it can only be based on stylistic leanings - but today, with fewer barrel artifacts and its more 'athletic' pose, I'd take the Bèze.

    (Armand Rousseau Chambertin) Closed but whoahhhhhhh. Some serious material here. I did not drink this wine . . . .it drank me. What power. Complex nose of red cherries, spice, animal, minerals. Incredible nuance in the nose. The nose has delineation. Monstrous on the palate with huge concentration but then has so many layers on the unfolding finish. Long and dense but revealing 1/40 th of what it has to offer. I would sit on this for at least 20 years.
