Armand Rousseau Chambertin Clos de Beze 2003
Cote de Nuits
one lightly corroded capsule, two with signs of old seepage
"A ripe but not roasted and highly expressive nose features notes of dark raspberry, black cherry, spice and earth notes is complemented by spicy plum and a smoky perfume that is akin to musk. The rich, intense and full-bodied flavors are surprisingly supple compared to the average 2003 today yet there is a solid lashing of sap-buffered tannins on the powerful, lingering and impeccably well-balanced finish. Like the '03 Chambertin, this too should be capable of aging for a very long time though it is sufficiently accessible that it wouldn't be a vinous crime to open bottles after only a few more years of cellar time." Burghound, 94 pts. 06/15
