Tasting note: (with thanks to Dr. Michael Chen; also opened from personal storage). Highly expressive and moderately mature aromas explode from the glass to reveal dark fruit, earth and spice elements that lead to intense, full-bodied, robust and impressively muscular flavors, all wrapped in a wonderfully velvet-textured and mineral-inflected finish of superb length. This has nearing its peak window of drinkability though I will continue to hold my few remaining bottles for a few more years first as there is just enough tannin remaining to suggest that a bit more development potential remains. I have tasted the '95 Cham many times with excellent results save for one bottle that was displaying noticeable brett. Burghound 94


Rousseau's 1995 Chambertin is bright, precise and wonderfully nuanced. There is a sense of translucent brilliance to the 1995 that is simply compelling. Sweet red berry fruit and floral notes show striking energy throughout. What a lovely Burgundy this is. -- Antonio Galloni 95 Vinous
