International Wine Cellarage (IWC) Review

IWC 92-95
Slightly less depth of color than the Clos de Beze. Three-dimensional tangy, sappy aromas of framboise, smoke and spices; vibrant, perfumed and deep. Stuffed with vibrant, spicy fruit. Dense, tactile, urgent and sturdy. Firmer on the back end than the Clos de Beze; the finishing flavor begins later, then goes on and on. The yield here was lower than that of the Clos de Beze.

Burghound/Allen Meadows (BH) Review

BH 95
One of the greatest wines of the vintage with one of the most complex and stunning panoply of young pinot fruit aromas I have ever experienced. Still almost completely primary and pristine, with the same vinous purity yet even more elegance and intensity plus notes of ripe earth, bitter chocolate hints and anise. Superbly intense, full, sharply focused, big, broad and deep flavors that are not especially dense but lead to a finish that simply goes on and on. Classy juice and this rivals the '93 and the '91 for wines for the decade honors chez Rousseau. Simply terrific. Tasted multiple times with consistent notes.
