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.

Good bright, dark red. Rather cool, youthfully medicinal aromas of black cherry, dark berries, mint and game. Sweet and silky in the style of the vintage's best examples but extremely backward today. Great density of material here but less open-knit and complex than the Clos Saint-Jacques and Clos de Beze. This rectilinear young Chambertin shows outstanding nobility of texture and tannins and stains the palate on the mounting aftertaste.
