Quantity to Purchase:

Size=750 ml, RP[92]

"I have a lot of time for Charles Rousseauís 1988s, even if they have become prohibitively expensive in recent years. The Ruchottes-Chambertin has a mature hue with a wide degraded tawny rim. It has a mellow, decayed, rather autumnal bouquet with light red cherry and estuarine aromas, hints of orange blossom emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle but insistent grip. Nice and compact like many 1988s, the tannins feel chalkier than the 1985 or 1990, but the brittle finish has a pleasing weightlessness that carries it through. This is understated but still a class act. Drink now-2030. Tasted September 2013." - Neal Martin, robertparker.com (Dec 29, 2013)
