VM92-94: Bright, deep red. High-pitched aromas of red cherry, animal fur, game, earth and spices. Tactile, sappy and pure, with brisk acidity giving cut and lift to the flavors of red berries, red cherry and smoked meat. Really lovely inner-mouth perfume here. Finishes with noble tannins and terrific juicy length. Incidentally, Eric Rousseau told me he prefers his Clos de la Roche in 2012 but his Ruchottes in 2013.

WA92-94: The 2013 Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru is another that Frédéric was enthusing over as we tasted through the barrel samples. Sure, it has a refined bouquet: strawberry, raspberry preserve, fine minerality and a touch of undergrowth. For me, the palate does not have the complexity as Mugneret-Gibourg’s or even the Charmes- or Mazis-Chambertin. A second barrel shows more energy and vibrancy, the fruit slightly more confit, so let us see how it turns out once in bottle.
