Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

Full red. Aromas of cherry, smoke, animal fur and maple syrup. Round, sweet and silky; a nice combination of stuffing and well-integrated acidity. Reasonably complex. Finishes with ripe tannins and a cherry flavor. Like most of these wines, this seems rounder and easier in bottle, as well as a bit less precise and more evolved, than it was from barrel a year ago.

Rousseau owns some of the most prestigious plots in Gevrey-Chambertin, and the resulting wines present the perfect distillation of the time-honored traditional methods of winemaking in Burgundy.

This translates into wines of superb concentration that achieve a Burgundian balance of essential elegance and striking purity.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
