Domaine Armand Rousseau Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru 2016
The Domaine Armand Rosseau Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru 2016 is a complex wine with a deep colour and a great length in the mouth. The aromatic palette is very rich and delicate with a dominant black berries and oriental spices. Wine with velvety and fine finesse.
Its existence predates the Chambertin, but both have great fame. It has an extra touch of subtlety, an elegant minerality while the Chambertin has more breadth and power.
Domaine Armand Rousseau is one of Burgundy's oldest and most revered family-run domains. They hold many grand cru plots in Gevrey-Chambertin as well as part of the much sought-after premier cru vineyard Clos Saint-Jacques.
The monks of the Abbey of Beze owned the place called Clos de Bèze in Gevrey-Chambertin. In 630, Amalgaire, Duke of Lower Burgundy, had ceded some land to them on Gevrey-Chambertin. They cleared them and planted vines in what would later become the Clos de Bèze. From here we have the Domain Armaund Rosseau Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru 2016.
The fruit comes from two different plots; the main parcel is located at the top of the appellation.
The soil is composed of scree particularly rich in limestone. The plot is located halfway down on limestone at the Lower Bajocian and Bajocian marls. At its peak, the vines evolve on clay limestones of the Bathonian.
The Clos de Bèze is often described as the chambertin's female alter ego. It represents the elegance and finesse of Gevrey-Chambertin.– Winery Notes
