Lot #258. Armand Rousseau Chambertin 1976

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 92 JG.
"I had never previously tasted one of the extant bottles of 1976, and the wine showed quite well indeed. There is a roasted tone to both the nose and palate that bears more than a bit of a resemblance to the 1990 in its current state, as the bouquet offers up notes of cassis, roasted meats, iodine, herb tones, a bit of damp woodsmoke, espresso and soil tones. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and powerful, with good depth at the core, and really quite polite and well-integrated tannins on the long, complex finish. This is quite an impressive 1976, and must have at one time been held in high esteem by Charles Rousseau . . ." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Jun 2003
Provenance: The Émeraude Cellar
Notes: 5cm, Very lightly scuffed, lightly damp stained, very lightly faded label.
