Description:

Armand Rousseau
Clos de la Roche 2015 (1 bt); "A discreet lashing of wood easily allows the equally sauvage-suffused nose to display its array of various dark berries, earth, floral and soft underbrush scents. The energetic and beautifully well-detailed medium weight flavors exude a subtle minerality on the muscular finish that exhibits focused power and excellent persistence. This is one of those relatively rare wines that will age effortlessly for years yet should be enjoyable the entire way." Burghound, 92-94 pts. 01/17 Ruchottes Chambertin Clos des Ruchottes 2014 (1 bt); "An interesting note of wild strawberries adds interest to the more typical aromas of raspberry, spice, earth and distinct floral nuances. The superbly intense, powerful, focused and wonderfully chiseled mineral-driven flavors deliver a palate staining, austere and brooding but seamlessly well-balanced finish where a hint of wood appears. This is at once refined and restrained though it's quite clear that this will, as is usually the case, require moderately extended cellaring." Burghound, 94 pts. 01/17 Gevrey Chambertin 2015 (1 bt)
