Tasting Notes

Bright, dark red. Much more closed on the nose than the Mazoyères-Chambertin, offering aromas of dried rose petal and smoky minerality. Less demonstrative on the palate as well, but aeration brings up wonderfully intense, penetrating flavors of red berries, brown spices, peony, pepper and smoky minerality. Conveys a powerful impression of dry extract in a very silky, subtly sweet package. Finishes very long, with noble tannins, repeating red fruits and a vibrant spiciness that perks up the salivary glands. This knockout wine is fresher in bottle that it was from barrel in late 2015, when it was more dominated by lower-toned soil components.

Score: 96Stephen Tanzer, vinous.com, March 2017

Once again the highly expressive nose can be aptly described as ultra-floral with a huge range of spice elements on the airy and cool aromas of red and dark berry liqueur scents. There is that beguiling sense of underlying tension to the firmly stony and beautifully well-detailed broad-shouldered flavors that deliver superb length on the seamlessly well-balanced finale. This will need to develop more depth to merit the top of the range but the underlying material is certainly present such that it could occur.

Score: 92/95Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (61), January 2016

The 2014 Chambertin Clos de Beze Vieilles Vignes has a very classy, sophisticated bouquet with vibrant red berry fruit infused with palpable mineral tones -- focused and complex. The palate has a sense of energy and animation on the entry with sorbet-fresh red fruit, orange zest and a touch of spice, the mouth tingling with the sensation; although, it segues into a more austere and structured finish, as if remembering its manners. This is an intriguing and cerebral Clos-de-Bèze.

Score: 93/95Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (222), December 2015

Healthy deep red. Musky redcurrant, rare beef, iron and earth aromas are complemented by a leathery nuance; a very complex expression of soil with a noble rusticity. Like liquid silk on the palate, this hugely rich and voluminous wine shows more primary fruit character in the mouth than on the nose, even if it's a bit lower-toned than the Chapelle. Thick, seamless wine with great finesse and length. Its serious but fully ripe tannins will require at least six or seven years of cellaring.
