2009 - Domaine Armand Rousseau Pere et Fils, Chambertin Clos-de-Beze Grand Cru
- Cote de Nuits
- 95+ ST
Good deep red. Darker and more restrained on the nose than the Clos Saint-Jacques, offering sour cherry, menthol, licorice and a peppery nuance. Rich, thick and powerful but youthfully brooding, with dark fruit, licorice and mineral flavors showing superb definition. Wonderfully deep, sappy, soil-inflected wine with a firm tannic spine and an expanding, energetic finish. Today I find this harder to taste than the Chambertin, which is frequently the wine that's cooler and more aristocratic in the early going.
