Domaine Armand Rousseau Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1996

$2695

Moderate ruby colour - much more fleshy looking than Chambertin Grand Cru. The nose is beautifully: sweet, fleshy Pinot Noir, quite feminine with incredible purity. A little melted chocolate but still primary fruits. The palate has stunning balance with great nervosity. Very silky tannins, lighter than Chambertin, which has more black fruits rather than red. This is so sophisticated and elegant... Neal Martin (eRobertParker.com)

Love the 1996. Still fresh, vibrant and full of life. Maybe a bit classically austere relative to most vintages, but vivid, persistent and highly nuanced. Adore the translucent energy here.

Byob. Needed the 2 hrs in the decanter. Monolithic for that period of time but finally began opening up. Brilliant.

Ripe cherries with soft scents of tomatoe leaves followed by a silky finish with tons of acidity
