    January 4, 2017 - Pnp, bright red color yielding red currant/hawthorn aroma and hint of spice. Forward oak on palate but there is plenty of fruit acidity and sweetness to divert attention that made this wine very approachable now, tannin is soft and overall very seductive.

    June 25, 2016 - HDH auction tasting at Tru; 6/24/2016-6/25/2016 (Chicago, IL): Heartbreakingly lovely. This is the kind of experience that will leave you like Gatsby standing on the pier staring at the green light. Super elegant and racy, with just amazingly pretty red fruit. I've worried a bit about the longevity of the 2008s because of the austerity, but this will almost certainly be an exception. So perfumed and bright, but there's great concentration here too. A touch short on the finish, but I'm giving a flyer on that given how amazing the nose and attack are.

    April 29, 2016 - Wow ! Robe pale. Un parfum floral exquis. Rose, fruits rouge, épices. Un délice.

    January 18, 2016 - Un vin qui se livre dès son ouverture. Un bouquet d’un grand charme, très floral, avec des épices chinoises me rappelant les arômes des crus de Vosne-Romanée. Bouche de belle concentration, sur fonds de fruits rouges acidulés, et offrant une certaine gourmandise. Tannins fins et ensemble doté d’un boisé noble, comme c’est souvent le cas sur les vins de ce producteur. 92

    November 14, 2015 - this stood apart (in the context of infanticide) from most of my burgundy stock, rousseau is the best... this had really nice cherry, raspberry fruit alongside something savory and/or spicy, could taste the oak treatment but frankly more subtle than i might have expected, i'm sure great wine making is part of the reason this wine is great already but it also has to have something to do with the grapes, this is good to great now and should be 93-95 pts in ten to twelve years, great mouthfeel, lithe and elegant notwithstanding the obvious power of the material
