Echezeaux - DRC

75 DP 0 1 - 575
Tasting Notes for Echezeaux - DRC, 2003:
Unquestionably the finest Echezeaux I have encountered from this famed estate, the 2003 explodes from the glass with candied raspberries, violet, and red cherries. Stunningly marrying elegance with richness and density, this medium to full-bodied wine is ample, pure, and velvety-textured. Loads of sweet red fruits are found in its persistent, sensual character. Drink it over the next 12-14 years.Wine Advocate # 160 Aug 2005

Chambertin Clos de Beze - Rousseau, Armand

75 DP 0 1 - 550
Tasting Notes for Chambertin Clos de Beze - Rousseau, Armand, 2003:
Loads of spices are intermingled with blackberries and black cherries in the wonderful aromatics of the 2003 Chambertin-Clos de Beze. A bold, ample, medium to full-bodied wine, it expands on the palate, revealing great breadth and richness. Hugely spicy, this candied blackberry-dominated effort sports a persistent finish crammed with solid tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2020. The Wine Advocate, #160, Aug-05.

Charmes Chambertin - Dugat, Claude

75 IB 0 2 - 450
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 Clos de Beze - Rousseau, Armand

75 IB 0 1 - 425
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.

Gevrey Chambertin Clos St Jacques - Rousseau, Armand

75 IB 0 2 - 420
Tasting Notes for Gevrey Chambertin Clos St Jacques - Rousseau, Armand, 2005:
With the 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques (which by its position in tastings here the Rousseaus conspicuously rate as grand cru) we arrive at the first wine that is matured in new wood. Pure, sweet, fresh black cherry fruit, marrowy and enveloping carnal richness, mysteriously enticing florality, low-toned, chalky minerality and accents of black tea and star anise are featured in this remarkably seamless wine. Meat, minerals and mystery dominate a finish that is profoundly layered yet preserves sheer palate-cleansing refreshment and positively vibrates with vividly fresh fruit intensity. Rousseau owns around one third of this great site, meaning that there are over a thousand cases of this phenomenal wine to ransack the marketplace in search of, then sock away for at least a decade and preferably two. It is always the last-harvested site, says Eric Rousseau, and in 2005 his roughly twenty veteran pickers could certainly afford to wait and richly rewarded us for it. With Eric Rousseau taking over increasingly from his father Charles, bottling may end up being slightly earlier than in the past, but such routine features as triage exclusively in the vineyards (not the press house), the inclusion of whole clusters and stems, precocious malolactic fermentation (although in 2005 and 2006, at least, Rousseau says he didnt force this), reliance on older barrels, and an eventual light plaque filtration for all wines remain as before. Given the long-running success of these Pinots in subtly yet insistently conveying the distinct personalities of their sites and standing the test of time, some might well ask why change the recipe? while others will wonder whether the wines could be made even better. In any event, nature conspired to hand the new generation a vintage of historic dimensions. Wine Advocate # 170 Apr 2007

Charmes Chambertin - Dugat, Claude

75 IB 0 4 - 390
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
