In stock now!

2011 Armand Rousseau Clos de la Roche Grand Cru...$349.99
Tasting note: An overtly spicy and very earth nose of red currant, plum and wet stone scents. There is lovely richness to the round, full-bodied and highly energetic medium-bodied flavors that exhibit firm tannins on the saline-infused finish. This is excellent and should reward mid to longer-term cellaring.

Rated 91-94/100 Allen Meadows, Burghound

2011 Armand Rousseau Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru...$349.99
Tasting note: In contrast to the reduction present in the prior wines this is really quite aromatically lovely with its expressive nose of very fresh red berry fruit, earth and humus scents. There are the same kinds of very fine-grained tannins underpinning the opulent yet reasonably precise medium weight flavors that culminate in a balanced and persistent if slightly less complex finish.
Rated 89-92/100 Allen Meadows, Burghound
