It may have something to do with the cooler site, or the high percentage of limestone in the soils, but this is the freshest and best balanced of the domaine's grands crus in 2017. Tangy, bright and very refined, it has chiselled acidity, fine-grained oak, lacy tannins and remarkable focus and balance. It's long and very satisfying.

(94-96 points) The 2017 Ruchottes-Chambertin Clos des Ruchottes Grand Cru has a pixelated bouquet that really expresses the limestone soils of this vineyard: subtle pressed iris scents infuse the red berry fruit, all with brilliant delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. There is a fine bead of acidity here, again, a little spicy (the leitmotif throughout the Rousseau range) with impressive grip and persistence on the finish. Excellent. -- Neal Martin

(92 - 94 points) At least based on these barrel samples, the 2017 Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru Clos des Ruchottes has the edge over the Clos Saint-Jacques this year, soaring from the glass with a fragrant bouquet of red cherries, raspberries, spices and orange rind. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive with good concentration at the core, tangy acids and chalky structuring tannins.- WK
