The third and last bottle of Valentine Day’s weekend. And what a fine finale. Some may find this a waste to drink with roasted chicken, but I think this was a delicious pairing. The Rousseau was all finesse and elegance and had great balance. Nothing stood out other than its silky texture and flavor complexity. The fruit was red with raspberries and strawberries and some cherry. From the much maligned (by some) 2004 vintage, this did not show any vegetal/green flavors. I wish I had lots more, but this was unfortunately my last.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.

    Thanks to you there are a few more of these in town. I didn't get any green notes in this one at all.
