Tasting Notes

Palish bright red. Candied cherry and raspberry lifted by minerals on the nose. Silky and perfumed, with lovely cut to the flavors of raspberry, flowers and minerals. Not at all overly sweet, but the tannins are on the light side. Rousseau noted that most of his 2008s have just started taking on color in the last couple of weeks, but this one seems a bit behind the rest. This is two-thirds Mazoyeres and one-third true Charmes, with the vines averaging 40 to 45 years of age.

Score: 87/90Stephen Tanzer,, March 2010

Quite pale, limpid ruby. Introvert on the nose. Gentle, floral, charming palate with real sweetness, even if not great weight. Really charming! Just some fine tannins and lots of rose-petal fragrance.
