RATINGS

95The Wine Advocate

Cassis, rose petal, licorice, and brown spices migrate from an intense nose to a grippingly-concentrated, thickly-dense palate...wears its huge extract and tannins on its sleeve, or - less metaphorically speaking - in a long, vibratory, tongue-shaking finish that clings like a sap of Clos de Bèze.

94Stephen Tanzer

Knockout nose offers black and blue fruits, dried flowers, minerals, mocha and Asian spices. Then chewy and powerful in the mouth, with an urgent quality to the sappy fruits and flowers...whiplash of fruits and crushed stone on the finish, which reveals a wonderfully subtle sweetness.

93Wine Spectator

Ripe, with blackberry, plum and pomegranate aromas and flavors, augmented by oak spice and mineral. This seems open and lacy, yet there's a good structure for support, with a very long aftertaste.

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.
