TN: 2009 Rousseau Gevrey Chambertin

Medium red color. Aromas of ripe red and dark cherries, raspberries, cranberries, blueberries, earth and minerals.
Medium bodied with flavors of slightly ripe cherry fruit. Good concentration and acidity. Finishes with a mineral streak and some menthol. Still slightly tannic and room for improvement as this ages. This went into the decanter for an hour and drunk over two hours.

Little young for you no ?

Indeed, but this was the only burgundy ordered off a restaurant list that was heavily tilted toward new world wines.

Ah huh. Buff said. I find Rousseau delicious at any stage.

I bought some of this on release, and found it so enjoyable, I drank them all in the first few months…lovely little wine.

I sold all but two of my 2010 Rousseau GC village wines. Then I drank one of those two. Then I bought back as much I sold.

Stupid, yea? But it was sooooo good. Most of them are buried, but I have a few hanging around in case the mood strikes.

The lesson? Everybody says try before you buy, but only I have told you to try before you sell.

The 2010 GC Village is an amazing wine, wish I could find more.

In recent years the lesser wines from Rousseau have really caught up with the big 3. This especially in 2012.

There are things in the world that I will never understand!

You’ve never made a mistake?

Ok, I get it. There are also couples that marry, get divorced and marry again.
But usually no divorce before the wedding night … flirtysmile

MMhhh…Not sure… Lots of divorces before the (next) wedding night in our country…
