96/99 Burghound 'Don't Miss! : As is often the case, this is more restrained than the Bèze and more deeply pitched as well with its cooler array of strikingly spicy red and dark currant aromas that are more heavily cut with freshly turned earth scents along with plenty of floral and sauvage influences, all of which is again trimmed in just enough oak influence to point out. The exceptionally rich, dense and highly energetic full-bodied flavors brim with both dry extract and a pungent minerality on the brilliantly complex and explosively long finish. This is a classic example of power without weight because despite the imposing size of the '16 Chambertin, the overall impression is one of harmony and grace. Among the 'big 4' of the Rousseau line-up, this is the one wine that might just surpass its 2015 equivalent.
Burghound 90-92 : A markedly sauvage-inflected nose combines ultra-fresh and cool aromas of plum, violet, dark currant and plenty of earth. There is similar size, weight and muscle to the equally stony middle weight flavors that possess a chiseled, youthfully austere and beautifully persistent finish. This is even firmer though the supporting tannins are clearly ripe. Patience advised.
The Sangreal Vineyard is the oldest planting (1994) on a north-facing slope of red ironstone on the surface going to limestone to bluestone below. The rows run north to south, gaining full sun exposure throughout the day and resulting in prettier, more perfumed wines. It is the first vineyard to be harvested. Sangreal is consistently made with 60 to 70% whole bunch and aged in new oak. It is fermented in a five-tonne oak barrel with an open-top fermenter. The wine is unfined and unfiltered in order to retain its natural flavour and bouquet. 2016 Sangreal shows great complexity with forest floor, baking spices and wild strawberries.
Classic Left Bank 'Value' Claret that's pleasurable and accessible now but will also age quite gracefully. Perennial Staff Fav and the 2015 is spot on!
