  Very deeply colored, indeed this is the mostly deeply tinted of the Rousseau '10s. A gentle touch of wood offsets the highly complex and ultra-fresh nose that interweaves a superb range of floral, spice and distinctly ripe fruit elements. The seductively textured, detailed, pure and vibrant broad-shouldered flavors display a subtle minerality before terminating in an explosive, powerful and tautly muscled finish that delivers massive length. This is a relatively powerful Rousseau Bèze yet it remains quite refined as the underlying tannins are almost inexplicably fine-grained and like the Clos St. Jacques, it should age effortlessly for years. In sum, this is simply phenomenal.   (1/2103)

  Bright, saturated deep red. Incredible multidimensional nose combines cherry, raspberry, gunflint, crushed rock, flowers and oak spices; youthfully reserved but already remarkably complex. Thick but magically light on its feet, with penetrating red fruit flavors framed and carried by explosive salty minerality. This wonderfully vibrant, refined wine is showing no sign of shutting down but it's hard to imagine that it won't go through a sullen stage on its way to peak maturity in 12 to 15 years. The sweet but firmly structured finish saturates the palate with red fruits, minerals and spices. (ST) 97+   (3/2013)

  The 2010 Chambertin-Clos de Beze bursts from the glass with an exciting melange of blackberries, cassis, graphite, violets and exotic spices. The Beze is the most exuberant wine in the Rousseau lineup. Black cherries, spices and licorice develop in the glass, adding considerable weight and texture as the wine continues to flesh out. Firm, massive tannins provide the perfect foil for the exuberant fruit. Today the Beze is massive, but it should be spectacular once the tannins start melting away. Anticipated maturity: 2025-2050.

  Deep colour. Such power and an explosive nose of ripe fruit and a hint of smoked meat with great minerality and just sheer class! One could risk it now!! But it would be a crying shame. Wonderful. Rich but wonderfully balanced. 19/20 Points (JR)   (12/2011)
