Robert Parker 94
Notes of red berries and plums mingle with hints of rose petals, peonies, grilled meats and forest floor in an inviting bouquet, introducing Rousseau’s 2019 Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru Clos des Ruchottes, a medium to full-bodied, bright and lively wine that’s ethereal and perfumed, with a pretty core of fruit and a long, saline finish.
Some vines have now been replanted. Cask sample. Firm and savoury on the nose with some real polish. Very rich yet not sweet. Real freshness and delight. Complete. Long with a peacock’s tail.
Anticipated maturity: 2028-2050
