A collector since 2011, this consignor’s passion for wine was ignited after enjoying a bottle of Burgundy at a dinner in Paris. He purchased his wine on release through the LCBO and SAQ as well as from France and USA. All bottles were stored in a temperature and humidity-controlled cellar before coming to auction at Iron Gate.
The wine in this lot has a score of 96 from Robert Parker and the following tasting note -Revisited from bottle, the 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru is showing beautifully, soaring from the glass with expressive aromas of sweet red berry fruit, smoked meats, coniferous forest floor, mandarin orange and peonies, framed by a deft application of cedary, spicy new oak. Full-bodied, sumptuous and enveloping, its velvety attack segues into an ample core of succulent fruit, concluding with a long and resonant finish. This is likely to be both deceptively approachable young and notably long-lived, offering a broad drinking window. This is a generous crop for Domaine Armand Rousseau, which will come as some relief to wine lovers smarting over reduced allocations in the frost-ravaged 2016 vintage, Cyrielle Rousseau describing the 2017 growing season as easy and uneventful by comparison. In keeping with the vintage, the wines are supple and open-knit, reminiscent of the decidedly charming 2007 vintage at this address. While this year's portfolio doesn't hit the highs of 2016 and 2015, the wines will also demand less patience, offering more immediate pleasure. There have been some changes of personnel at this venerable address, but Cyrielle Rousseau seems increasingly self-assured at the helm, and progress appears to be being made in the vines of the Château de Gevrey-Chambertin which the domaine has been working for some years now. I look forward to seeing how the 2017s show from bottle—the mise being planned for February-March—after they complete their élevage.
