About

98

"Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Ruchottes Chambertin Grand Cru from Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg has a powerful, fruit-driven bouquet with layers of cranberry, pomegranate and raspberry preserves. There is a sense of volume here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, plenty of succulent black fruit laced with tobacco and white pepper, leading to a structured, grippy finish that should see this repay cellaring. It is a serious wine for serious Burgundy lovers, one of the highlights of the vintage that surpasses even my own lofty predictions from barrel. Tasted September 2017."

93 Allen Meadows - Burghound

"From 55+ year old vines. Here too moderate wood sets off notably cooler aromas of various dark berries that exhibit hints of spice, rose petal, sauvage and earth. The highly energetic, detailed and focused middle weight plus flavors are based on a far more prominent base of both minerality and structure but there is no absence of richness on the markedly firm but not really robust or especially austere finish. Textbook Ruchottes."
