From the moment the domain was established, the family developed an enduring ritual: the elders teach the ways of the vine to the next generation. Thus, they maintain the strong bond between man and vine, upholding the family values and strong work ethic through the years. In the Rousseau family, the heartfelt love of the vines is renewed with each generation; a profound respect for the terroir is anchored in the family values. Enter their world.

The domain is managed by Eric Rousseau, with the help of his daughter Cyrielle. It has expanded over the years and today covers 15 hectares and 3 acres. They own 3 hectares of Village appellation, 3 hectares 77 of Premier Crus, and 8 hectares 52 of Grand Crus, situated in Gevrey Chambertin and Morey-Saint-Denis

Equally subtle wood frames the even spicier if slightly riper nose that reflects a layered blend of red currant, violet, rose petal, earth, and a whisper of exotic tea. The full-bodied if slightly less concentrated flavours also reflect an abundance of minerality on the firm, serious and equally well-balanced, youthfully austere, and hugely long finale. I usually prefer one or the other [Chambertin] at this stage each year but in 2019, while the two wines are noticeably different, it's not clear which will ultimately be the more interesting. In sum, this is a choice but one where there is no wrong answer as this too is brilliant!

Tasting Profile

The 2019 Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze Grand Cru clearly has more intensity than the Chambertin. True, it is showing a little more wood at the moment, but I also find more fruit – raspberry and wild strawberry – interlaced with shavings of black truffle and forest fern. The palate is medium-bodied with supple but firm tannins. This is endowed with impressive depth and body weight and yet it retains disarming elegance on a finish that fans out gloriously. "This is the business" is the phrase that passed through my mind as I tried to keep a stoic face after encountering this fabulous Clos-de-Bèze." - Neal Martin- Vinous
