    Chambertin 2001
    A. Rousseau
    Bottle (1)
    "Stunning aromatic complexity with ultra pure layers upon layers of black and red pinot fruit mixed with violets, dried rose petals and rich soil notes plus far more minerality than this wine usually displays. The moderately structured flavors are buffered by superb extract and the sheer depth and breadth of flavors is dazzling. As classic Chambertin goes, this is not especially massive and more of a muscular middle weight but it is incredibly long and the intensity is simply breathtaking." (91-94pts Allen Meadows, Burghound #9, Jan 2003)

    "The expressive nose has always retained its genuinely stunning aromatic complexity and even with 14 years of age the still mostly primary black and red pinot fruit scents that are mixed with violets, dried rose petals and pungent soil notes display only the first hints of secondary development. There is a bit more size, weight and richness compared to the '01 Clos de Bèze (see herein) on the moderately structured but overtly mineral-inflected middle weight plus flavors that are buffered by ample dry extract before culminating in a wonderfully long and still firm finale. As classic Chambertin goes, this is not especially massive but it is incredibly long and the intensity is simply breathtaking. To my taste this is still on the way up and while it could be enjoyed now if decanted for 30 minutes or so first, I would be inclined to hold it for another 5 to 8 years first." (94 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Apr. 2015)
