Tasting Notes

Robert Parker: 94--96 Points
eRobertParker.com #210 Dec 2013 Neal Martin (94-96) Drink: N/A $405-$536 The 2012 Ruchottes-Chambertin Clos des Ruchottes Grand Cru comes from the domainís monopole: populated by one-third vines aged around 30-years and the remainder around 65-years old (see December issue for more details.) This year it sees 20% new oak. It has wonderful delineation on the nose with heightened mineralite from the limestone soils. The palate is medium-bodied with a precise opening. There is a wave of pure, clinically defined fresh raspberry and wild strawberry notes that dovetails into quite a stern, very linear finish. This is uncompromising at the moment, an aloof yet compelling Ruchottes-Chambertin that does not quite possess the completeness of say, Mugneret-Gibourgís, but clearly as the substance to age extremely well.
