The Rousseau 2006 Chambertin Clos Des Beze, while – unlike their Chambertin – hailed-on, is in a class by itself in this collection for sheer flavor intensity, as well as for obvious (but not obtrusively tannic) sense of structure and density. Ripe but tart blackberry, black cherry, and licorice are underlain by saline, meat stock, chalky, peaty undertones that carry into a multi-registered, reverberating, veritable organ chord of a finish. This fascinating contrast with its Chambertin sibling will no doubt be worth following for 12-15 years. Rousseau reports that the net yield after discarding fruit during harvest was a mere 15 hectoliters per hectare.
