Tasting Notes

The 2006 Armand Rousseau Clos de Bèze Chambertin has a deep, vibrant ruby color that hints at its complexity and aging potential.

On the nose, it exhibits an intense and layered bouquet. Aromas of dark berries, cherries, and plums are complemented by floral notes of violets and a hint of rose petal. Over time, earthy undertones and nuances of forest floor, truffle, and a subtle hint of oak emerge, adding to its aromatic complexity.

The palate is rich and full-bodied, displaying the elegance and finesse typical of great Burgundy wines. Flavors of ripe red and black fruits such as cherry, blackberry, and blackcurrant dominate, balanced by a vibrant acidity and silky tannins. There are also secondary flavors of spice, tobacco, and a touch of minerality, creating a harmonious and long-lasting finish.

Aging Potential:
This wine has excellent aging potential, with many experts suggesting it will continue to develop and improve over the next 15-20 years. The 2006 vintage, in particular, benefits from a few years of cellaring to fully express its depth and complexity.
