Armand Rousseau's 2017 Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru presents a captivating hue in the glass, exuding an enticing ruby-red color that captures the eye. Its bouquet is a testament to its grandeur, unveiling an array of extroverted aromas that dance with dark, plummy fruits, interwoven with seductive notes of chocolate, licorice, and sweet oak spice. Delicate hints of grilled meats and espresso add depth and complexity to the olfactory experience. Upon the palate, this wine reveals its full-bodied nature with a rich and ample presence, boasting broad shoulders and a generous core of fruit. Unlike its Chambertin counterpart, the Clos-de-Bèze exhibits more mid-palate amplitude and a pronounced tannic structure, adding depth and texture to its profile. Despite its power, the wine maintains an elegant demeanor, with fine-grained tannins, impeccable acidity, and exquisite proportion. With its refined character and remarkable aging potential, the 2017 Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru promises to evolve gracefully over time, showcasing the unparalleled craftsmanship of Armand Rousseau.

Robert Parker - (92-94) Points

"The 2017 Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru bursts from the glass with extroverted aromas of dark, plummy fruits that mingle with notes of chocolate, licorice, sweet oak spice, grilled meats and espresso. On the palate, it's full-bodied, rich and ample with broad shoulders, a generous core of fruit and more mid-palate amplitude and tannic bite than the Chambertin."

Antonio Galloni - 94 Points

"The 2017 Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze Grand Cru has quite a high-toned bouquet, a touch of boot polish coming through and then receding to reveal very complex floral aromas. The elegant palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, perfect acidity and fine proportion. Maybe it is missing a little weight on the back end, but it is still a refined Clos-de-Bèze that will age with grace. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2017 tasting."
