Chambertin, Domaine Armand Rousseau 1997

Tasting Notes

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (125), October 1999

Rousseau's 1997 Chambertin is powerful. This Chambertin's dark berry scents lead to a tar, cinnamon, briar, blackberry, black raspberry, and assorted dried fruit flavored personality. It is thick, chewy, medium-to-full-bodied, and will certainly be the longest-lived 1997 from this property. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2010+.
