Domaine Armand Rousseau Père et Fils Chambertin 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The difference between Chambertin and Clos de Bèze is sharply etched in<br/>2004 as this is cooler, bigger, richer and more powerful though less elegant<br/>and with a more limited range of spices specifically and aromatic breadth in<br/>general. The medium full flavors are reserved, tight, precise and very pure<br/>with extraordinarily good punch and precision, all wrapped in a firm, dusty and<br/>linear finish. I particularly like the mouth coating quality of the flavors as<br/>there is ample dry extract here, which serves to perfectly buffer the firmly<br/>tannic spine. Outstanding stuff and while not a truly great Rousseau<br/>Chambertin, it's knocking on the door. <br/>(Alan Meadows - Burghound - 01-Jan-2007) <br/>
