2000 Domaine Armand Rousseau Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru
A seductive Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru from Domaine Armand Rousseau JR 17.5.
The Clos-de-Beze ’00 has a creamy, voluptuous bouquet with vanilla creams, strawberry sauce, raspberry and a touch of Morello. Beautifully perfumed. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded, very supple tannins, perfect acidity and a caressing texture. This finish has incredible clarity and delineation. Stunning.
100% Pinot Noir
Armand Rousseau owns 3.5 acres of vines in Chambertin Clos-de-Beze, a Grand Cru vineyard in Gevrey-Chambertin - the second largest holding, but the most prestigious name here. Its history goes back to the 7th century when it was owned by the monks of the Abbey of Beze. Produces 470 cases a year, the same rarity as Romanee Conti for a fraction of the price.
