    August 25, 2019 - With duck confit, roasted potatoes and green beans.
    Pale ruby color, on the nose this is definitely feral and earthy, our friends who were visiting found it charred and smoky but I don't notice that at all. On the palate, this is fully resolved, mature, complex and clean, the fruit is delicious, the wine shows fine structure and stands up well to the rustic food. Good finish. My last bottle and Rousseau prices are now out of sight so I doubt I'll ever taste wines like these again.

    November 16, 2018 - Checked another bottle after reading it’s “over the hill”. Couldn’t disagree more. Brought this on a long car ride to visit old (burg loving) friends who moved away. In a great place right now (the wine too!) Spectacular nose of funky cherry, sous bois, blood orange, wet straw and anise. Delicious and with an incredibly long finish. Others called it 95+

    April 13, 2018 - Medium tawny. Dried red fruit - cherries, strawberries, liquorice, violets, smoke, meat, savoury, barnyard. Fully developed. Dry, high acidity, medium (-) tannins. Medium (+) finish and very long bouquet. This bottle was in a better place than the last one - fresh, riper, still drinking beautifully.

    February 9, 2018 - Medium tawny. Dried red fruit - cherries, strawberries, liquorice, violets, smoke, meat, savoury, barnyard. Fully developed. Dry, high acidity, medium (-) tannins. Medium (+) finish, slightly drying at the end. But bouquet goes on and on. Fading on the palate. Time to drink up.

    (Rousseau Armand Gevrey-Chambertin) Medium cherry-red colour. The nose soars, high-toned and fresh, with violets and cherry-skinned fruit over toast from the creamy oak base. Some fat, fresh red-shaded fruit on the palate with a creamy texture. This is, at best, only medium weight, but there's super purity and detail, the fruit is really quite punchy on the mid-palate. I prefer the finish on the 2001 but this presents itself really well - I'll also buy a couple more of these. One negative from the last drops, the nose becomes quite estery and not that pleasant - quite a contrast to the 2001.
