Tasting Notes

**Note: two-thirds of the .98 ha parcel of vines was planted in 1912 and the remainder in 1973**
An overtly floral, more elegant and airier nose displays a striking array of spice elements on the red and dark currant, herbal tea, earth and lavender scents. Here too the mouthfeel of the larger-scaled flavors is quite sophisticated while displaying plenty of punch on the youthfully austere finale that also flashes a touch of bitter fruit pit character. Lovely stuff.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (77), January 2020

The 2017 Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze has a wonderful estuarine bouquet, cockle shells and mudflat aromas infusing the dark berry fruit. Undergrowth scents emerge with aeration, allied with a tang of dried blood. The palate, by comparison, is fleshy and generous, demonstrating some youthful hardness that will dissipate with time in bottle. A very capable Clos-de-Bèze.
