Chambertin Clos de Bèze, Lucien Le Moine 2011
This is at once reserved but intensely spicy with cool aromas of black pinot fruit, cassis, earth and underbrush. There is a discernible touch of wood on the delicious, vibrant and beautifully well-detailed big-bodied flavors that brim with seemingly endless reserves of dry extract, all wrapped in a balanced and seductively textured finish where the wood resurfaces. This is also terrific as the depth of material is remarkable.
