Chambertin Clos de Bèze, Bouchard Père et Fils 2016
This possesses one of the most complex noses in the range and features a panoply of spice elements along with exceptionally fresh and dense black fruit, violet and plum aromas which are trimmed in generous oak and menthol notes. There is excellent power to the focused, intense and attractively vibrant flavors that have a firm yet silky mouth feel before terminating in an explosively if ever-so-slightly warm finish. This stony built-to-age beauty is quite firmly structured but not forbidding as it's not particularly austere.
