Lot #113. Armand Rousseau Chambertin 2017

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98+ JG.
"The 2017 Chambertin from Domaine Rousseau is a magical wine. Recall that this was far more heavily-frosted in 2016 than was the case with the Clos de Bèze, so the pent up energy in the vines was channeled into great depth and concentration in the 2017, due to the Rousseau family reining in the yields earlier in the season. The perfumed nose soars from the glass in a complex blaze of plums, cherries, raspberries, grilled meats, cocoa powder, a glorious base of soil, woodsmoke and a suave foundation of nutty new oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and beautifully sappy at the core, with stunning soil signature, fine-grained tannins and a very, very long, very complex and utterly refined finish. I love the sense of reserve this wine shows on the palate right now, despite it being utterly seductive aromatically in its youthful grandeur. A brilliant wine in the making." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Nov/Dec 2018, Issue #78
Provenance: The Conifère Cellar
Notes: #04055.
