Burghound | Rating: 95Here too there is a discreet application of wood that easily allows the ripe and fresh aromas of plum, earth, violet, humus and sauvage hints to be appreciated. There is excellent power, muscle and volume to the intensely mineral-driven big-bodied flavors that culminate in a serious, driving and explosively long finish that is very firmly structured and unapologetically built for long-term cellaring. In brief, this is seriously impressive.Author: Allen Meadows
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Subtle again but a little darker fruited than the LatriciAres. Less immediate fruit too so that tannins feel drier and more obvious on the palate. Refinement is the hallmark here rather than rich flavour. (JH)"Author: Jancis Robinson
Wine Advocate | Rating: 93Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Chambertin Grand Cru from Rossignol-Trapet has one of the most austere and backward bouquets among the septet of Chambertins. This demands coaxing and reluctantly offers blackberry, cranberry, smoke and damp undergrowth notes. But it is not as vivid as its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with a firm grip, a demonstrative Chambertin and yet unlike Armand Rousseau's Chambertin tasted alongside, it does not quite deliver the payload of complexity and intensity on the final third. It starts so well and then it leaves you wanting more. Tasted September 2017.Author: Neal Martin
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
