This is completely different from the BÃ?Â¨ze aromatically speaking as here the nose is brooding and recalcitrant and only aggressive swirling liberates fresh scents of spice, wet stone, game and dark berry fruits. There is outstanding richness to the powerful and impressively scaled flavors that possess an abundance of dry extract that imparts a velvety quality to the mid-palate while also buffering the tightly wound core of firm tannins on the driving mineral-inflect and hugely persistent finish. This is a stunner of a wine and at this early stage it's not clear which of the Rousseau big boys will be the better effort in 2011. I for one will be looking to purchase both.

Bright, deep red, darker than the 2012 today. Wild, soil-driven aromas of blueberry, violet, black pepper, leather and game. Lush, velvety and compellingly sweet, with a magically fine-grained texture and outstanding concentration to the dark berry, violet and earth flavors. This is fat with fruit, and the noble tannins allow the back end to open and expand. Compared to the 2012 version, this may show a bit less inner-mouth tension but it's richer and more complex at this stage.

The 2011 Chambertin Grand Cru clearly subsumes the new oak better than the Clos de Beze in 2011, allowing the terroir to come through and demonstrating better delineation and poise. With aeration, delicate floral notes begin to emerge. The palate is well-balanced with lovely poise ' a more approachable Chambertin from Rousseau with fine tannins and an elegant, refined finish. Very fine. Drink 2014-2023.
