Lot #41. Armand Rousseau Chambertin 1996

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98+ NM.
"Tasted blind at The Arches. This is an incredible Chambertin, perhaps one of the greatest wines overseen by Charles. Now at 13-years of age it has embellished that spellbinding bouquet, so luxuriant, almost spicy with pure red cherries, briary, something exotic…Turkish delight? Breathtaking definition and purity. The palate is full-bodied, sensuous in texture, silky smooth filigree tannins that belie the power and the backbone present. Seamless. Just so effortless and refined with amazing focus on the finish. Black plum, cassis and blueberry. Moreover, you realise that this Chambertin has barely started motoring, this is a warm up for what will ultimately follow. Stunning." Neal Martin, Wine Journal, Nov 2009
Provenance: The Nantais Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $3,250
