    Ruchottes Chambertin 1998
    F. Esmonin
    Bottle (12)

    “A fully mature and beautifully complex nose features notes of truffle, sauvage, earth and smoked meat. There is a lovely texture to the round, delicious and caressing medium-bodied flavors that possess unusually good phenolic ripeness in the context of the vintage, all wrapped in a lingering, balanced and mouth coating finish. This is a very fine example of the appellation and one that is drinking perfectly now even in magnum format. In a word, impressive.” (92 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, June 2013)

    Estimate: $600 - $800.
