RATINGS

93-95Burghound.com

There is plenty of the hallmark minerality and I very much like the texture on the balanced, persistent and harmonious finale. A wine of class and grace that should also age for years.

92-94Stephen Tanzer

Rich and fine-grained, with lovely lift to the utterly seamless, deep flavors of berries and earth.

18.5Jancis Robinson

Smooth and rather hidden. A touch peppery, the fruit subtle but well pitched. Extreme refinement and excellent length, the tannins so fine and dry.

91The Wine Advocate

The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, supple in the mouth, with good volume. There is plenty of red and black fruit here. although it is missing a little complexity toward the finish.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits-Villages, Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambertin Clos de Beze

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.

TYPE

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.
