Domaine Armand Rousseau Père et Fils, Morey-Saint-Denis Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 1993

Rousseau Clos du Roche 1990

Twenty years on tasting.

Pellucid ruby red, fading rim.  Svelte, even a bit tender for a grand cru.   Modestly proportioned with a chiffony texture.  Yet benificent and enchanting: beetroot and myrtille around a sleek cherry heart.   Refined secondary notes of ceylon tea, brown spices, wilted lilac, Morey humus.  A lattice-like structure: this ripples with precision and purity.  Immaculate, fine-boned Clos de la Roche.  Now – 2020.
