Gorgeous...the texture is thick, the mouthfeel is supple,fresh and elegant, the fruit is subtle, clean andracy. The blackberry comes with a slight herbalcharacter (veering toward cassis bush, olives androsemary).

90-92Stephen Tanzer

Perfumed, enticing aromas of cherry, raspberry, mocha, flowers and iron...floral in the mouth... The noble, fine tannins really spread out on the palate.

Chambertin Clos-de-Beze is a Grand Cru vineyard in Gevrey-Chambertin, and its history goes back to the 7th century when it was owned by the monks of the Abbey of Beze. After the French Revolution the Catholic Church was forced to divide the vineyard among peasants. Today it is a 38-acre vineyard, making it slightly larger than Chambertin. Chambertin and Chambertin Clos-de-Beze are adjacent and share similar limestone, clay and gravel soils. Of the 18 proprietors, the largest by acreage are Pierre Damoy, 13.4 acres; Armand Rousseau, 3.5 acres; and Drouhin-Laroze, 3.48 acres.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
