We are delighted to offer for sale an immaculate and incredibly rare original case of 2003 Clos de Beze from Rousseau.
From the Seckford cellars, this beauty Is still ageing exquisitely and in March this year Allan Meadows re-scored it 94-100 hailing it similar to the Chambertin and says to leave it alone for at least another decade. Perfect for laying down in the Seckford cellars – this, we believe will be one of those legendary cases in years to come!
2003 Chambertin Clos de Beze, Armand Rousseau
£22,950.00 per 12 under bond.
94 Points (Allan Meadows, Burghound)
(opened from personal storage). A ripe but not roasted and highly expressive nose features notes of dark raspberry, black cherry, spice and earth notes is complemented by spicy plum and a smoky perfume that is akin to musk. The rich, intense and full-bodied flavors are surprisingly supple compared to the average 2003 today yet there is a solid lashing of sap-buffered tannins on the powerful, lingering and impeccably well-balanced finish. Like the '03 Chambertin (see herein), this too should be capable of aging for a very long time though it is sufficiently accessible that it wouldn't be a vinous crime to open bottles after only a few more years of cellar time; with that said, I will not touch mine for at least another decade. Tasted March 2019.
