» Sometimes the same vintage of a wine is listed at different prices. That's because some vendors are more aggressive and want a quick sale. We recommend buying the bottle with the best price, it's the same as the other bottles unless there's a condition note indicating otherwise. »Other times there's a reason for different prices for the same wine and vintage. For example, bottles with defects such as a torn label or low ullage level generally sell for a discount vs. wine with no defects.

97 Points Robert Parker

Following a Chambertin ’72 from Rousseau is not easy, but I was not the only person amazed by the precocity of the Grands Echezeaux ’79. The vivacious nose is entrancing with tart red cherries, red currant and violets that seem half their age. It offers brilliant delineation considering its age, a bouquet with unbridled vivacity and joie de vivre. The palate is supremely well-balanced with an almost fructose-like entry – a feminine, pretty, pure Grands Echezeaux that puts profundity to one side and just wants to keep giving out pleasure. There is a sense of symmetry towards the crystalline finish that is a wonder to behold. This is a real surprise and moreover, you could imagine this bottle lasting another 20 years with ease. Tasted May 2013.
