- Presentation of the winery
It’s three generations of winemakers, Armand, Charles and Eric who made the Rousseau's winery one of the most famous Burgundy family. The vineyard consists of 14 acres of pinot noir. The area of 3.5 hectares in the 1st Crus and Grands Crus 8.5 hectares, including Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Beze. The domain is the incarnation of the Burgundian tradition.
Chambertin-Clos de Bèze is a red wine, Gevrey Chambertin grand cru, known since the 7th century, when the vineyards belonged to the monks of the Abbey of Bèze. It is surrounded by two other great wines, Chambertin (which he can take the name of) and Mazis.
The dress of Chambertin Clos de Bèze is black cherry. The nose is fine and elegant, focusing on notes of red fruits, raspberry, red currant, black fruit such as blackberry and blackcurrant, but also hints of menthol and licorice, combined with spicy aromas. In the mouth the Clos de Bèze is all finesse and delicacy, but with powerful tannins. It is a naturally carved wine for safekeeping.
The 2012 vintage, produced in very small quantities because of climatic conditions, remains a model of the high quality of the estate productions.
