This wine has now sold out. To register your interest please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will notify you when it is back in stock.
This remains one of the greatest wines of the '93 vintage with a simply dazzling breadth of aromas. The highly layered nose is perfumed and lovely yet at the same time powerful and penetrating as it introduces detailed, driving and still very fresh flavors that display astounding depth. This is a bit more obviously structured than the '93 Chambertin (see herein) yet it finishes with the same slow building and wonderfully persistent length. A complete wine with class and breed to burn that should enable it to age well for years to come. Reference standard Clos de Bèze. Multiple, and consistent, notes.

The Clos-de-Beze from Armand Rousseau is showing beautifully at twenty years "young". It has a very complex nose with intermingled red and black fruit, wild heather and a pastille-like purity that is a wonder to behold. It just seems so natural and composed. The palate is very youthful and vibrant wit hints of spice and raisin, perhaps a slight animal-like quality on the finish that is generous and long. What a beautiful Clos-de-Beze! If I owned a bottle I would happily afford it another decade in the cellar. Tasted May 2013.
