"Strangely, this is the second time I’ve encountered the rare-as-hens'-teeth 1966 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru from Rousseau, and quite possibly from the same source. It has a ferrous nose of stewed black tea and a light grass clipping scent, implying that maybe not all the fruit reached phenolic ripeness. The palate is straightforward with touches of Earl Grey, tapering in toward the finish. As I commented once before, a curiosity rather than a superlative wine."
