Dark ruby-colored, the killer Chambertin Clos de Beze floored me with its nose of roses, violets, black cherries and Asian spices. Its sublimely elegant palate impression is intense, complex, chewy, austere, minerally, stony, full-bodied and long. It possesses considerable tannin behind the rich fruit so it should be at its best between 2006 and 2016. This note is the result of tastings I did in Burgundy between January 7 and January 29. The wine was tasted from cask, not bottle. Pinot Noir, a fragile varietal, reacts poorly to fining, filtration, and careless bottling techniques, I recommend caution when considering buying a red burgundy based on cask samples. I called it as I tasted it, and hope the bottled wine reflects the quality of the samples I was provided. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Needs 4.5 hours of slow of this 1995 Rousseau Clos De Beze has an alluring nose with signature cherry and Asian spices. On the mouth is is beautifully balanced hiding under a cemetery cloak a powerful and muscular strain though well takes by the cloak. An impressive finish

Tasted blind next to La Turque 95. Medium ruby showing signs of age. Spicy peppery nose, wild strawberries and blackberries, forest floor, and piney, balsamic notes. Opens up with time in glass. Gorgeous sweetness on mid palate, structured and tight in the mouth showing substantial tannin. Long finish. A remarkably well built wine, clearly intended for the long haul and with many more years to go!

1995 Domaine Armand Rousseau Clos de Beze burgundy. Drank at lunch at Reddwood. Wasn't supposed to be a fantastic year, but this wine killed it. It was awesome and surprised K. Awesome.
