Rousseau Chambertin Clos de Beze 2001  (#102652)

Pinot Noir from Gevrey-Chambertin, Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France

An accomplished and certainly underestimated vintage that will delight the true connoisseur! Drink: 2011 up to 2021. (2011) 96 points Fine Wine Review: The Chambertin-Closde-Bèze is a more opulent, richer, less mineral wine, especially when tasted on days subsequent to the opening of the bottle. The strawberries remain, but the red currant is replaced by darker, more animal aromas and flavors. This may be slightly below the very greatest Clos-de-Bèzes from Rousseau, but it will provide a great wine for those willing to cellar it sufficiently. 2014-2034.
