Tasting notes

Drink: 2009-2013


The Rousseau 2006 Gevrey-Chambertin displays a fascinating and unusual aromatic melange of wood smoke, cola, cherry, and cocoa powder. While relatively light in color and body, it is brashly smoky and bitter sweet in finish, as well as downright refreshing. Eric Rousseau's own litany of its virtues - not an unfamiliar one among growers this vintage, or among Rousseau's...

...comments on his other 2006s - is "equilibrium, vivacity, and finesse." I would recommend placing it at table based on its particular virtues, and doing so within the next 3-4 years ,although, naturally, this and other Rousseau 2006s might make a fool of me with its stamina.
