"Tasted blind, the 2015 Chambertin Grand Cru confirms its status as one of the wines of the vintage—and as the unequivocal highlight of Rousseau's 2015 portfolio. Aromas of sweet red-black fruits, candied peel and cedar mingle with nuances of grilled meats and raw cocoa in a complex bouquet, with a touch of oak vanillin emerging with aeration. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and immensely layered, with succulent acids, supple and fine-grained tannins and an exceptionally long finish. Despite its aromatic and textural drama, it remains controlled and quintessentially elegant."

"The 2015 Chambertin Grand Cru has a very sensual, pure bouquet that blooms with red cherries, red currant jus, crushed stone and a touch of sous-bois, all exquisitely defined and pixelated to the nth degree. The palate is extremely well balanced, offering fine, saturated tannin, a killer line of acidity and a precise, mineral-soaked, persistent finish that feels effortless. Stunning. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting."
