Professional Reviews For This Wine


Burghound | Rating: 93-96

This is completely different from the B�¨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.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95(+?)

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.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
