Lot #346. Armand Rousseau Chambertin-Clos de Bèze 2005

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98 AM.
"This seems to have changed very little in the past 10 years and it would be fair to describe its evolution as glacial as the ripe but exuberantly fresh nose is even spicier than that of the '05 Chambertin (see herein) with kaleidoscopic breadth and depth. Like its stablemate this is a big and imposingly-scaled effort that possesses outstanding mid-palate concentration as the tannin-buffering sap completely coats the mouth on the explosively long, muscular and powerful finale. Despite the strikingly good size, weight and punch this remains a beautifully well-balanced effort that will need at least another 10 years of cellar time because even though it's not quite as structured and backward as the Cham, it is nowhere close to being ready for prime time. That said, it should be genuinely breathtaking when it finally arrives at its apogee. Tasted twice in the last year with consistent results." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Jun 2015
Provenance: The Phoque Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $4,250
