The 2017 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru has a rich, generous bouquet of copious red cherry and wild strawberry fruit tinged with Earl Grey and tobacco. The palate is well balanced with fine, supple tannin and a keen line of acidity. This is precise, not overly complex, but very well proportioned, building gradually toward the grippy yet elegant finish. Excellent. Drink 2022-2040.

From bottle, the 2017 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru wafts from the glass with pretty aromas of cassis, cherries, black tea, rose petals and spices. On the palate, it's full-bodied, supple and satiny, with a textural attack, a fleshy, succulent core of fruit and a pure and expansive finish. Open-knit and charming, the wine's powdery, melting tannins are largely concealed. This is a generous, head-turning Clos de Bèze that delivers immense pleasure, albeit comparatively little in the way of profundity.

Wafting from the glass with aromas of cherries, smoky cassis, dark chocolate, grilled meat and spices, the 2017 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru is full-bodied, ample and deep, with good concentration and a promisingly tight-knit core that largely conceals its velvety structuring tannins. Long and youthfully chewy on the finish, it will demand and reward bottle age.
