    Chambertin 1990
    Clos de Beze, A. Rousseau
    1bsl, ssos
    Bottle (1)
    "Wonderfully complex aromatics of underbrush, earth, dried herbs and spice notes are followed by earthy and still lightly structured medium-bodied flavors of real distinction and very good length. The tannins have now completely rounded out and the finish delivers plenty of mouth coating velvet and spice. In sum, this is an excellent wine that falls just short of the Chambertin in 1990. While this has arrived at its peak, well-stored examples should continue to drink well for years to come." (93pts Allen Meadows, Nov 2011)

    "The ripe but not roasted nose is comprised by wonderfully complex aromatics of now entirely secondary fruit that is nuanced by notes of underbrush, earth, dried herbs and spice elements. There is still a bit of unresolved tannin to the still lightly structured medium-bodied flavors that possess very fine if not truly distinguished length on the otherwise well-balanced, rich and velvety finish." (92 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, June 2016)
