The 2018 Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru has an intense bouquet of black fruit with veins of blueberry, infused with crushed rock and rose petal. Full of tension, this is classic Ruchottes. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-boned tannins, and lightly spiced, displaying an unerring sense of symmetry toward the saline finish. It needs bottle age to fully knit together, and whether it will surpass the 2019 we will have to see. Still, this is a superb Ruchottes that will evolve over 20–30 years.

Brownish tawny. Notes of cherries, spice, mushrooms, dark earth and a little kirsch that developed over the night. In the mouth the fruit is faded but there is still a nice structure to it. Declined in performance over the night. I gave the last bottle too much airtime before tackling it. This was enjoyable right away with a pop, decant and pour.

No. 8 in the 9 wine Gevrey Chambertin Grand Cru bracket tasted blind. Candied red fruits on nose and palate. The palate of Medium plus to Profound intensity. Not as impressive as most of the others in this bracket. This domaine is owned by 3 sisters and has developed somewhat of a cult following. Ruchottes being slightly higher up the slope than most of the other Grand Crus they might have suffered more frost damage.

Bright, dark red: lovely Pinot color. Deep, highly nuanced nose combines raspberry, mocha, flinty minerality and complex soil tones. Plush, sexy and sweet but with a serious edge of acidity framing its intense strawberry, red raspberry, mineral and spice flavors. This compellingly chewy, full yet juicy wine finishes rich and very long, with serious late-arriving tannins and lingering perfume. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, Mar 2017)

Great comparison of 2 GC, both '93, not a vintage that would be regarded as spectacular, the Mongeard-Mugneret was all showy and expressive when opened, the Mugneret-Gibourg needed a little more time to come around, but at a pinch I think the M-M was the hit.

Bouquet of earth and red and black cherries, gently perfuming the nostrils. The palate opening has lovely old Pinot laced fullness and balance, the wine shows some lovely sweetness to its elegant still pervading fruit, with some nicely cushioning underlying tannins and lovely texture. Those signature Ruchottes mineral notes emerge past the mid palate, it has nice lift, and it concludes with an appealing confection of earth, game and spice. Not a profound wine perhaps, but an impressive expression of the terroir, and remarkable for its longevity.
