ARMAND ROUSSEAU Charmes-Chambertin 2012

Wine Region: Burgundy - France

: Pinot Noir

Tasting notes: "The 2012 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has an exquisite bouquet with fragrant wild strawberry, bergamot and forest floor that simmers with tension, subtle touches of cassis unfolding in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, slightly chalky tannins, over a layer of effervescent candied fruit - mandarin and apricot enriching the finish. This is such a pretty thing, surely destined to be irresistible in its youth." - Wine Advocate
