This blockbuster of a Burgundy stole the show, with Rousseau demonstrating how to get the absolute best out of notoriously fickle Pinot Noir.
Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate - Tasted blind in Bordeaux, this is an exquisite Chambertin. It soars from the glass with pure Maraschino cherry, redcurrant, orange-blossom and white peach with supreme purity and delineation. Like a great Grand Cru, it seems to gain momentum upon contact with the air. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine precision, a more feminine Chambertin than other vintages but it has filigree tannins and a silky-smooth finish that is utterly seductive. Wonderful. - Neal Martin
