Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Chambertin Grand Cru from Armand Rousseau had a slight reduction on the nose but underneath lies some gorgeous & ripe redcurrant, strawberry & bay leaf aromas.  Very complex, but you need to wait for the aromas to fully get into their stride.  The palate is extremely well balanced with fine tannins.  It is blessed with wonderful focus & precision, armed with outstanding tension & intensity on the sophisticated finish. This is what we call in the trade “proper Chambertin.” (Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate, Interim End of Nov 2016, Dec 2016, 95 Pts)

Matured in 100% new oak, the 2013 Chambertin Grand Cru has wonderful transparency on the nose, beautifully defined with Morello, crushed strawberry, limestone & orange sorbet.  The palate is supremely well balanced with lithe tannins, beautiful acidity & real elegance on the finish.  This is sublime Chambertin, but I might hedge my bets with the Clos de Bèze this year. (Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate#216, Dec 2014, 94-96 Pts)
