From the 1991 vintage and scoring 90/100 Parker Points, “I adored Rousseau’s 1991 Clos des Ruchottes-Chambertin. It is another example of a 1991 that is richer and more flavorful and complex than its 1990 counterpart. The color is deep ruby/purple. The bouquet soars from the glass, offering scents of smoked meats, black and red fruits, herbs, and toasty oak. Rich and full-bodied, with exceptional concentration and focus, this beautifully made, pure, well-structured red burgundy….Rousseau, one of the reference points for great burgundy, appears to have made 1991s that are even richer and more profound than his 1990s. His production was one-half of normal, so these wines will be difficult to find. Rousseau normally excels with his three top cuvees – Gevrey-Chambertin-Clos St.-Jacques, Chambertin-Clos de Beze, and Chambertin, but the lower level wines often lack concentration and intensity. That is not the case in 1991. Kudos to Rousseau for producing his finest portfolio of wines in over two decades!.” Drink now – 2025.
