Rousseau Chambertin 2009: 100 Points from Tim Atkin MW

 
Rousseau Chambertin 2009 Header
"A brilliant effort and one of the best vintages ever for this justifiably revered wine." Burghound on the 2009 Rousseau Chambertin
 
Domaine Armand Rousseau Chambertin is one of Burgundy's most desirable wines.
The unique label sets the mood for something very special in the bottle. This is Gevrey-Chambertin at its most majestic and few would question that Rousseau makes the most sublime example.
Charles Rousseau Rousseau's Chambertin holding were acquired between 1920 and 1994 by Armand and Charles Rousseau and today they are the largest owners of this prime vineyard.
Sadly, Charles, a true gentleman, passed away in May last year. It was during his tenure that Domaine Rousseau rose to become one of the most desirable Burgundy addresses. Today, international demand is as large as it has ever been.
We are delighted to offer 6 bottles of this revered wine from the cellar of one of our Australian clients. The wines have been professionally stored since release.

Tim Atkin MW: 
I've no idea what the release price of this will be, but it's worth it for perfection. Power, sweetness, silky tannins, seamless oak, vivacity, perfume and understated
concentration. 100 Points and the only wine he rated 100 Points in 2009

Burghound: 
This is also ultra-pure and densely fruited with notes of anise, mint, wet stone and a sauvage hint that introduces intensely earthy and mineral-driven big-bodied flavors that are rich, powerful, serious and densely concentrated, all wrapped in a silky, palate staining, explosive and colossally persistent finish. This is actually relatively expressive and approachable for a young Cham yet the balance and harmony is present for this to age for decades. A brilliant effort and one of the best vintages ever for this justifiably revered wine. 98 Points
Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: Dark red. Ineffable aromas of red berries, mint, crushed stone and flowers. At once silky and taut, with outstanding inner-mouth energy and perfume to the powerful, penetrating flavors of berries, flowers, spices and minerals. Seems to combine the aromatic perfume of the Clos Saint-Jacques with the tension and spine of the Clos de Beze--and to take them to a higher level. This remarkable wine, utterly harmonious from the outset, saturates the palate with extract on the unflagging finish. It's nearly impossible to spit this. Give this 10 or 12 years and then enjoy it over the following decade or two. Remarkably, this wine was made from a healthy yield of nearly 40 hectoliters per hectare. 97+ Points
