    ($212) Full ruby-red. Extraordinarily perfumed, profound nose combines tangy black raspberry, rose petal, coffee and game; essence of Cote de Nuits pinot noir. Lush, sweet and seamless; wonderfully silky and aromatic in the mouth. Truly palate-staining wine, with compelling sweetness and smooth, thoroughly buffered tannins.

    (with thanks to John Orth; also opened from personal storage). This fantastic effort just continues to get better and better and one day it's going to be simply fantastic as it's already brilliant. A flat out gorgeously complex nose of spice, earth, minerality and still fresh red and black pinot fruit aromas leads to rich, intense and beautifully well-delineated medium-bodied flavors blessed with plenty of mouth coating dry extract that confers a seductive texture onto the strikingly persistent finish. This is clearly better than my original assessment and, accordingly, I have upgraded both the score and the potential longevity to reflect the superb quality. Tasted many times and this only seems to go from strength to strength. In a word, exquisite.

    Deep crimson. Heady nose. Really quite intense and sweet - more impressive than most Rousseau 1999s but this does not seem to have been a great vintage for Rousseau. Very drying on the finish though. Not a charmer.

    The medium to dark ruby-colored 1999 Chambertin Clos de Beze has a beguiling perfume of red cherry and violet. It is medium to full-bodied, elegant, and unctuously textured. This juicy, sweet red cherry, currant, and raspberry-flavored wine has impeccably ripened tannins detectable in its exceptionally long and delineated finish.

Founded just over 100 years ago, Domaine Armand Rousseau is a family-run winery considered to be among the best in Burgundy. Rousseau owns some of the most prestigious plots in Gevrey-Chambertin, and the resulting wines present the perfect distillation of the time-honored traditional methods of winemaking in Burgundy. The formula is simple—superb vineyards plus old vines plus low yields. This translates into wines of outstanding concentration that achieve a Burgundian balance of essential elegance and striking purity.
