Chambertin Grand Cru 2009, Rossignol-Trapet
At the last count Rossignol-Trapet owned the third largest plot (1.70 hectares) of Le Chambertin. Armand Rousseau owns 2.20 hectares and Jean and Jean-Louis Trapet have 1.90 hectares. In my tasting notes for the Armand Rousseau Chambertin 2008 and the Louis Remy Chambertin 2009 I made it clear that the assessment of these big wines when so young is always difficult. How about this Chambertin 2009? Its more open than others I have tried at this stage: a gentle strawberry nose, suggestions of red roses. Fresh acidity, supple tannins, intense fruit matiere. Finely balanced and complete in all respects. This Chambertin 2009 will fill out marvellously. Drinking from 2016. Tasted courtesy of the Corney & Barrow Burgundy 2009 tasting.
