RATINGS

95-97The Wine Advocate

...exudes sheer personality and class. An endless bouquet redolent of violets, licorice, tar and spice melds into dark red and blue berry fruit. White flowers and mint add an exciting upper register to the brilliant, pure finish...

95-98Stephen Tanzer

Vital aromas of raspberry, faded rose, crushed stone, mocha, noble herbs and tobacco leaf. Round, sweet and hugely concentrated, with harmonious acidity giving shape and energy, and an almost magically light touch, to the silky, pliant...

94Wine Spectator

A muscular red, fresh and racy, with macerated cherry, mint, spice, smoke and char notes. Shows excellent potential, evidenced by the long, resonant finish.

94-97Burghound.com

..red currant, plum and stone aromas gracefully merges into the powerful but sophisticated medium-bodied flavors that possess seemingly buckets of dry extract that almost forcefully pushes the very firm tannic spine to the background..

17+ Jancis Robinson

Heady, mushroomy nose. Lots of bright cherry fruit. Great zest. But overall a tad tight and serious. Worth following if you can afford it. This may well open out to be glorious...

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, 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.
