    June 20, 2020 - I feel like I have partaken in a very special experience in drinking an almost perfect wine. It’s hard to describe perfection, but it’s the lightness and elegance with absolute intensity on the palate, the seamlessness, absolute balance. No rough edges. Just stunning beauty.

    Such a beautiful mix of primary and tertiary flavours and no problems drinking now - red and dark cherry, plum, cranberry, spice, earth, undergrowth, mushroom, game meats. The intensity on the palate is astounding and the flavours just roll on and on for minutes.

    A privilege to drink a wine like this and I’m not sure any Pinot is ever going to quite live up.

    May 5, 2020 - yowsers spice box city!! Insane nose. Ripe round red fruit warm. Very high acid. Finish for days.

    December 30, 2019 - Grand showing here, drinking side by side with the 2008 Beze which was more structured. The Chambertin was the winner for me as it displayed the tell tale kaleidoscope of the great Rousseau wines with cured meat, some barnyard funk, red fruit and spices. Elegant palate, great vibrancy. Make sure to give it some air before drinking.
