    September 24, 2019 - Tremendous combination of intensity and focus. Perhaps just slightly less exuberant than some other bottles, but once again this proves to be a Gevrey of the highest caliber. 97+

    April 16, 2019 - Great intensity and pungency to this bottle. 98-99

    April 11, 2019 - Brad E wrote about this crazy tasting where we had the Rousseau Chambertin and Close de Beze from 90 and 91. I think we agree that all of the wines were extraordinary and that if you want a reliable epiphany experience with Burgundy, stick with Rousseau from great years with nearly 30 years of bottle age. Beyond that, choosing a favorite is really just splitting hairs. This one was my fave. In fact, on other occasions when I was fortunate enough to have a Beze and Chambertin from this producer side by side, my preference always lies with the richer, more voluminous Chambertin; others side with the elegance of the Beze. Both fabulous wines with just a slight terror difference. If you prefer the Clos de Beze and want to give me your Chambertin, I'll gladly oblige, but either one is fine by me.

    March 9, 2019 - Magical 2x2 flights: 90 Chambertin, 90 Beze. 91 Chambertin, 91 Beze. A rare treat to have all four of these in one sitting. The 90 Chambertin was so pure, and so beautiful. Close to perfection. The 90 Beze was delicious, rich, and a great foil to the Chambertin. The 91 Chambertin was in any setting fantastic, but a touch shy of the perfect 90. Then the 91 Beze comes along, and is literally the sexiest wine on the planet on this night. So utterly lovely. What a perfect set of wines.

    December 21, 2018 - Holiday Burgundy Lunch - Rousseau, Leroy, DRC, Ramonet, d'Auvenay (Scottsdale, Arizona USA): Served blind. Wine of the night, amongst stiff competition from a lineup of Rousseau, DRC, and Leroy. This is as good as Burgundy gets, it's heavenly. Such precision and delineation, akin to a great Musigny, and also so clean. Light and long finish lasts forever. This is otherworldly. I am ever grateful to the friend who served this incredibly special bottle tonight.
