Charmes Chambertin - Dugat, Claude

75 IB 0 2 - 350
Tasting Notes for Charmes Chambertin - Dugat, Claude, 1993:
The Charmes-Chambertin (165 cases for the world) boasts layers of flavor, a saturated deep ruby/purple color, a huge attack, considerable tannin and muscle, as well as an inner sweetness and that profound mid-palate not found in many 1993s. This wine has it all - ripeness, richness, structure, purity, and complexity. Cellar it for 3-4 years and drink it over the following 10-15. As the ratings attest, Claude Dugat, working in his 13th century abbey/wine cellar called Cellier des Dimes, hit several home runs in the 1993 vintage. His whole berry fermentation provides more fruit, but in his modest manner, Claude takes no credit for what are once again profound red Burgundies. No wonder when Lalou Bize-Leroy purchased wine for her negociant firm, she made this cellar one of her frequent stops.Wine Advocate # 100 Aug 1995

Chambertin - Rousseau, Armand

75 DP 0 2 - 750
Tasting Notes for Chambertin - Rousseau, Armand, 1995:
Displaying a bright, dark color and huge aromas of Pinot fruit, smoky oak and rocks, the Chambertin has a massive, deeply spicy, sweet, very thick, super-complex palate with sauteed bacon notes. Tannic, extremely tight and stunning, this backward wine will reach its peak between 2007-2020. 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. #The Wine Advocate, #111. The Wine Advocate, #111, Jun-97.

Chambertin Clos de Beze - Rousseau, Armand

75 IB 0 4 - 695
Tasting Notes for Chambertin Clos de Beze - Rousseau, Armand, 1995:
Dark ruby-colored, the killer Chambertin Clos de Beze floored me with its nose of roses, violets, black cherries and Asian spices. Its sublimely elegant palate impression is intense, complex, chewy, austere, minerally, stony, full-bodied and long. It possesses considerable tannin behind the rich fruit so it should be at its best between 2006 and 2016. This note is the result of tastings I did in Burgundy between January 7 and January 29.

Chambertin Clos de Beze - Jadot, Louis

75 IB 1 0 2350 -
Tasting Notes for Chambertin Clos de Beze - Jadot, Louis, 1996:
This wine was extroverted and boastful when I encountered it. This magnificent offering has a saturated black/ruby color and an enthralling nose of candied cherries, roses, blackberries, stones, earth, and toasty oak. It is full-bodied, velvety-textured, and unbelievably dense yet superbly focused. Fresh and lively layers of red cherries, clay, currants, and Asian spices can be found in this powerful, intense, classy, and persistent wine. It should hit its peak around 2006 and be cellared through 2014. Wow! Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Chambertin Clos de Beze - Rousseau, Armand

75 DP 0 1 - 660
Tasting Notes for Chambertin Clos de Beze - Rousseau, Armand, 1996:
This dark ruby-colored wine exhibits a nose of charred oak encrusted with blackberries, cassis, and stones. It has a full-bodied, expansive, highly-defined, complex, and silky-textured personality that possesses black cherries, iron, minerals, gravel, and cassis. This firm and highly structured wine will require cellaring. Projected maturity: 2005-2012. As far as the 1996 vintage is concerned, Rousseau's comments were bluntly candid -

Charmes Chambertin - Dugat, Claude

75 IB 0 1 - 400
Tasting Notes for Charmes Chambertin - Dugat, Claude, 1996:
have no argument with anyone who states that this wine merits a perfect score. It is a dark ruby/purple-colored wine that regales the olfactory senses with sweet and perfumed red and black cherry scents that are lively, profound, and verging on jammy - reminiscent of the filling of a deep dish cherry pie. On the palate, this wondrous wine's combination of super-ripe candied red fruits and violets with virtually perfect precision and purity of flavors is mind-boggling. This complex, velvety-textured, chewy, and delineated wine is utterly extraordinary and other-worldly. What remains to be said about this wine crafted by the shy, self-effacing, and ever-smiling Claude Dugat? Well, it might be getting even better. While still having the opulence of fruit and suppleness that have made his wines renowned throughout the world, this wine appears to have more structure. My instincts have, in the past, been that Dugat's wines were best drunk young, but this wine displays the necessary balance between fruit, acidity, and backbone for extended cellaring. Perhaps Jean-Marc Joblot, the extremely talented Givry producer, said it best: "Claude Dugat's 1996s are the most beautiful expression of Pinot Noir I've ever had." A taster would have to be dead not to fall in love with these wines. Wine Advocate # 118 Aug 1998

Tasting Notes for Clos de la Roche - Rousseau, Armand, 1996:
Exhibiting a medium-to-dark ruby color and lovely floral aromas of cherries, cassis, leather, and blackberries, this wine has excellent intensity and concentration of black fruits as well as earthy, and stony flavors. This medium-to-full-bodied, harmonious, introverted (particularly after the previous offering), and oily-textured wine also possesses a long and firm finish. Drink it between 2001 and 2007. As far as the 1996 vintage is concerned, Rousseau's comments were bluntly candid -

Tasting Notes for Gevrey Chambertin Clos St Jacques - Jadot, Louis, 1996:
This wine is often of grand cru quality. Medium-to-dark ruby-colored and offering lovely aromas of roses, currants, and raspberries, this wine is admirably expressive yet introverted - it's made for the long haul. It is a feminine, highly-structured, and vibrant wine filled with super-sweet red and black fruits. This focused, defined, and classy offering also possesses an extraordinarily long finish.

Chambertin Clos de Beze - Rousseau, Armand

75 DP 0 6 - 450
Tasting Notes for Chambertin Clos de Beze - Rousseau, Armand, 1997:
The medium-to-dark ruby-colored 1997 Chambertin Clos de Beze displays ethereal black fruit aromas. It has jammy fig, tar, licorice, grilled stones, bacon, earth, and spicy oak flavors in its medium-to-full-bodied character. This hedonistic, muscular, well-delineated, and intricate wine should be consumed over the next 10 years. The Wine Advocate, #125, Oct-99.
