    Description

    Chambertin 2007
    Clos de Beze, A. Rousseau
    Bottle (1)

    Just a tiny first effort from the much, much bigger temperature and humidity controlled cellar of a midwestern gentleman. All wines bought on release from reputable retailers.

    "...an almost invisible touch of oak influence that highlights stunningly complex and layered aromas that are positively kaleidoscopic in their sheer breadth with textured, cool and intensely mineral suffused big-bodied flavors that for all the focused muscularity sacrifice none of the fine detail this wine is known for, all wrapped in an almost painfully intense and explosively long and mouth coating finish. This is not a massive Bèze but it's a real knockout." (95 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #37, Jan. 2010)

    "Dark red-ruby. Exotic, in-your-face aromas of dark raspberry, dried rose petal, violet, licorice and minerals. Wonderfully silky on entry, then lush and sweet in the middle, offering a magical combination of fine-grained texture, sharp definition and underlying minerality. As sexy as this is today-and it's much more expressive now than it was from barrel a year ago-its long, echoing, spreading finish and captivating palate-saturating sweetness suggest it will gain in complexity for a decade or two." (95 pts. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, Mar. 2010)

    "The 2007 Chambertin Clos-de-Beze Grand Cru is drinking beautifully at the moment. It has a pixilated bouquet that is utterly entrancing – red currant, bergamot, hints of pomegranate seeds and an underlying mineralite that is divine. The palate is perfectly balanced with extremely fine tannins. There is something regal and self-assured about this Clos-de-Beze, with a sense of weightlessness in the mouth that is bewitching. This both satisfies the senses and flirts with profundity. Dare I suggest this is too exquisite to cellar? Damn – I’ve just gone and done it." (96 pts. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate #208, Aug. 2013)
