1995 Rousseau Charmes Chambertin
Quantity to Purchase:

Size=750 ml

"Aged in one year old oak casks, the dark-colored Charmes-Chambertin exhibits ripe cherry fruits and a touch of spiciness in the nose and an extremely elegant dark berry, chewy palate. Slightly more austere than other Rousseau Charmes I've tasted over the years, it is a medium-bodied, velvety-textured wine. This note is the result of tastings I did in Burgundy between January 7 and January 29. The wine was tasted from cask, not bottle. Pinot Noir, a fragile varietal, reacts poorly to fining, filtration, and careless bottling techniques, I recommend caution when considering buying a red burgundy based on cask samples. I called it as I tasted it, and hope the bottled wine reflects the quality of the samples I was provided." - Pierre Rovani, robertparker.com (Jun 26, 1997)
