Knockout nose combines blackberry blueberry black cherry and violet. Dense and thick but weightless on entry then impeccably balanced and sharply delineated in the middle but more backward than the Clos-Saint-Jacques. Wonderfully tangy dark fruit flavors are complicated by minerals and bitter chocolate. From pale marly soil notes Rousseau. Finishes intense long and youthfully tight but with real nobility to the tannins.

Very deeply colored indeed this is the mostly deeply tinted of the Rousseau '10s. A gentle touch of wood offsets the highly complex and ultra-fresh nose that interweaves a superb range of floral spice and distinctly ripe fruit elements. The seductively textured detailed pure and vibrant broad-shouldered flavors display a subtle minerality before terminating in an explosive powerful and tautly muscled finish that delivers massive length. This is a relatively powerful Rousseau Bèze yet it remains quite fine and like the Clos St. Jacques it should age effortlessly for years.

The Beze is the most exuberant wine in the Rousseau lineup. Black cherries spices and licorice develop in the glass adding considerable weight and texture as the wine continues to flesh out. Firm massive tannins provide the perfect foil for the exuberant fruit. Today the Beze is massive but it should be spectacular once the tannins start melting away. Anticipated maturity: 2025-2050. - Antonio Galloni
