    September 14, 2020 - In line with other recent bottles. Lacks the subtlety and layers of some vintages, but still upside here. 94+

  • Cantenac Brown Likes this wine: 96 points

    August 18, 2020 - My second time in a week. A clear garnet in the glass. Soy sauce nose, with spice. Lovely nose. My favorite from the start amongst a very strong line up. Elegant and balanced. From BV

    August 16, 2020 - Light and bright ruby to garnet. Incredible burgundian nose that is perfectly mature. Barnyard, earth, mushrooms, truffles. Ripe strawberries on the palate, elegance combined with power. Deep flavours and complex. The label condition was seriously faded, but the cork was perfect and the wine was drinking superbly, even if perhaps slightly more developed than we may have expected. One of the best wines I have tried all year. From BV

    June 12, 2020 - Had been opened for a few hours, what was left was enchantingly ethereal tart strawberry palate. Appealingly clean.

    June 4, 2020 - Sweet, de-stemmed aromatics. Harmonious, voluminous, flavorful palate.

Burgundy-Report

    (Rousseau Armand Chambertin) Deep colour. Again a higher-toned nose, but somehow different to last. High acid with slightly higher tannin than the previous wine. This wine is fuller and sweeter, with an even longer finish than the Clos de la Bèze. A hint of creamy oak still on the finish.
