An all but invisible application of wood frames the spicy, floral, earth and sauvage-inflected red and dark currant, violet and plums scents. There is both good intensity and freshness to the muscular and more mineral-driven medium weight plus flavors that terminate in a distinctly austere if hugely long finish. This is noticeably less evolved at present than any of the prior wines and is clearly going to require extended cellaring. Drink: 2031+
Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting, Christophe Roumier's 2014 Ruchottes Chambertin Grand Cru had a touch of volatile acidity on the nose, more feisty and fruit-driven than its peers, the barrel more pronounced and clearly requiring more time to be fully assimilated. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, more austere in style but nicely proportioned. There is impressive tension and salinity toward the marine-influenced finish and it feels very persistent.

Good dark red Alluring scents of cherry, purple fruits and spices, plus a hint of game At once velvety and light on its feet, with pungent saline minerality and inner-mouth floral lift to its intense purple fruit flavors This penetrating, sharply delineated, weightless wine finishes with subtly complex minerality and terrific lift.

Savoury, mineral nose. Such refreshment and the fruit almost obliterates the structure. Firm and so confident. Long. 18.5/20 points (JR)
