2008 Emmanuel Rouget, Echezeaux Grand Cru, Bottle (750ml)

Shop 'In Stock' Wines
"Good full red. Deep, sappy aromas of kirsch, violet and minerals, with a medicinal cast. Sweet on entry, then taut and penetrating in the middle, with superb energy to the flavors of tangy, crunchy red fruits. At once dense and light on its feet, finishing with a saline nuance and lingering cherry flavor. This serious, structured wine really lifts the palate and stimulates the taste buds." ST for VM Mar 2011
"A relative bargain in red Burgundy? Burgundy's 2009 reds, not surprisingly, are opening at very high price levels, in response to strong demand, and the top wines will be difficult to find in the U.S. marketplace. Meanwhile, many 2008s remain on retail shelves and may soon be sharply discounted. So it's probably no exaggeration to say that some 2008s will be available for half the price as the same wine from the 2009 vintage. Burgundy lovers should be ready to pounce."
