International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92(two-thirds Mazoyeres): Complex nose melds dark raspberry, licorice, coffee, mocha and underbrush. At once sweet and energetic, with strong acidity nicely buffered by the wine's silky texture. Terroir-driven wine with good stuffing and substantial ripe tannins. (The rather masculine, powerful Cazetiers was quite reduced, not to mention hardened by CO2, and was impossible to assess.)Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: January/February 2012
Wine Advocate | Rating: 94The 2010 Charmes-Chambertin is deep, fleshy and totally seductive. It boasts striking inner perfume that serves as a recurring thread with which endless nuances of fruit are woven together. Finessed, silky tannins provide the backbone for all of the aromas and flavors to shine. I loved the integrity of the fruit in the Charmes. Rousseau's Charmes is roughly 60% Mazoyeres and 40% true Charmes.Author: Antonio Galloni
