Tasting Notes

There is a whiff of green tea to the attractively spicy aromas that have now developed moderate secondary character along with plenty of earth and game nuances. In the same vein as the nose, there is a mild touch of leafiness to the otherwise delicious middle weight flavors where the supporting tannins have now largely, though not completely, resolved on the sneaky long, delicious and complex finale. I would describe this as knocking on the front door of its peak drinkability though it should continue to hold. In sum, this is a very good 2004 if not a great wine by the loftly standards of Rousseau and its lengendary Chambertin. Tasted November 2019. Allen Meadows - Burghound
