Chambertin, Domaine Rossignol-Trapet 2014
Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Chambertin Grand Cru from Rossignol-Trapet has one of the most austere and backward bouquets among the septet of Chambertins. This demands coaxing and reluctantly offers blackberry, cranberry, smoke and damp undergrowth notes. But it is not as vivid as its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with a firm grip, a demonstrative Chambertin and yet unlike Armand Rousseau's Chambertin tasted alongside, it does not quite deliver the payload of complexity and intensity on the final third. It starts so well and then it leaves you wanting more. Tasted September 2017. Drink Date 2019 - 2035
