It has been four years since I last tasted the Chambertin from Rousseau and if anything, the wine has continued to improve since then. The bouquet is more feminine and mannered than the Clos-de-Beze with scents of wild strawberry, raspberry, hints of wild mushroom and truffle that gain more and more intensity the longer it remains in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied but delivers a crescendo of flavors: raspberry preserve, Cepes, hints of tobacco and dried herbs. It fans out gloriously like a huge wave breaking upon a shoreline, and the persistency is the best of the three Rousseau ’93 tasted alongside. While it is not as magisterial as the 1996, it has both class and something slightly feral and rustic. Sublime. Tasted August 2013. Oct 2013, www.robertparker.com
