    Description

    Chambertin 1993
    A. Rousseau
    Bottle (1)
    "Much more reserved than the Bèze though it has finally begun to grudgingly open, displaying reticent black fruit and earth notes with restrained, pure and powerful, extremely rich, almost massive flavors that offer a core of inner sweetness and then does a slow build to an intense, extremely long finish. At the moment, it is not as aromatically complex as the Clos de Bèze but since this remains impressively youthful in every respect, it may yet catch its stable mate. For my taste, this has finally arrived at its peak if only just. In a word, brilliant. Multiple, and consistent, notes." (94pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, Nov 2011)

    "A perfumed if distinctly cool nose displays somewhat reticent secondary black fruit and earth aromas that are nuanced by notes of spice, earth and a touch of the sauvage. The equally restrained, pure and powerful flavors are extremely rich, indeed the palate impression is borderline massive yet the driving and hugely long finish is impeccably well-balanced. This big-bodied and robust effort possesses a discreet mid-palate sweetness that largely buffers the subtle finishing austerity that is so typical of the '93 vintage. For my taste, this bad boy of a Chambertin has finally arrived at its peak though it should be capable of holding at this level for years, perhaps even decades, to come." (95 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, June 2016)
