Tart cherry enjoys a prominent return engagement throughout this year's Rousseau collection, and no more so than in a 2006 Mazy–Chambertin that mingles its bright fruit with salted beef stock and an amalgam of wet stone and chalk. Smoky and cyanic cherry pit notes only heighten the sense of austerity which it must however be pointed out accompanies an admirable sense of purity, clean meatiness, and tannic refinement into a sustained finish. This looks likely to benefit from several years in bottle, but again I would be inclined to drink it within the next six or seven thereafter.
