Chambertin Clos de Beze Armand Rousseau Premier 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

95-97 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru has a seductive bouquet with pure raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, woodland scents and a touch of something sweet deep down underneath...white chocolate maybe? The palate is medium-bodied with very refined, supple tannin. The acidity cuts through the red berry fruit and then a healthy dose of black pepper comes towards the finish that has a slight biter cherry edge. This is superb and yet the 2014 Chambertin just moves it to one side this year and says...I'm the daddy." Issue# 222, 12/15 95-97 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media: "Saturated red with ruby tones. Knockout nose combines raspberry, smoked meat, rose petal and mellow oak tones. Pure silk in the mouth but with intense mineral and floral high notes giving powerful dynamism to the flavors of raspberry, spices and crushed stone. Really exhilarating sugar/acid balance here. Tannins reach the front teeth on the tactile, palate-drenching finish. One of the longest wines of the vintage. Incidentally, Rousseau told me that this wine was much more marked by its oak component just a month prior to my visit, and that his Clos de Bèze routinely needs its second winter in barrel to absorb its oak." 01/16 93-96 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "Don't Miss! In 2014 it's as though the Clos de Bèze and Chambertin have switched places in the sense that this is less expressive, super powerful and appears to be the more structured of the two as well. A discreetly spicy nose consists of sandalwood, essence of black cherry liqueur, violets and a hint of the sauvage. There is seriously good size, weight and power to the imposingly scaled flavors that display almost painful intensity on the driving, explosively long and very firmly structured finish. Unlike most vintages this is actually the harder of the two wines to read today though everything appears to be in place to allow this to age brilliantly." Issue# 61, 01/16
