2014 Domaine Armand Rousseau Ruchottes-Chambertin Clos des Ruchottes Grand Cru
Vinous | Rating: 93(20% new oak): Dark red. Alluring scents of black raspberry, violet, spices and licorice. Juicy and penetrating, with perfectly integrated acidity framing and extending the flavors of boysenberry, coffee and bitter chocolate. This bracing wine finishes with substantial dusty tannins and noteworthy grip and class.Drink Dates: 2023 - 2035Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: Mar 2017
Wine Spectator | Rating: 96A core of cherry and strawberry flavors lurks beneath the floral and vegetal notes in this racy red. The oak is beautifully integrated, and this is layered through the long, spice-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2022 through 2040. 70 cases imported. — BSDrink Dates: 2022-2040Author: Bruce SandersonIssue: Dec 31, 2017
