Armand Rousseau Charmes Chambertin 2017
WS96: This is superb, with everything in the right place, beginning with macerated cherry, kirsch, sandalwood and stone notes. Layers of flavors build on the palate, remaining fresh and focused through the lingering aftertaste. Great energy here.
VM93-95: The 2017 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a very precise and focused bouquet, almost the epitome of transparency and utterly encapsulating. There is real mineralité here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very tensile from the start with tart red cherries, Japanese yuzu and orange zest that fans out beautifully on the finish. This is a Charmes-Chambertin with a skip in its step.
