TASTING NOTES

"The 2016 Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze Grand Cru is matured in 100% new oak with the same percentage of whole cluster fruit. It has less immediate bouquet compared to the Les Amoureuses and Bonnes-Mares, more cerebral perhaps with dark berry fruit, crushed stone, hints of orange rind and brown spices, unfolding gradually in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a sappy, precise and focused entry. It is not a powerful de Bèze, Nicolas Groffier comparing it to his 2012, but I think it is better than that. It has such precision on the finish with a very sustained aftertaste. Just beautiful. Tasted at the Domaine." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"This red delivers fine integration of black currant, cherry and floral aromas and flavors, with elements of sandalwood, green olive, smoke and tobacco. Well-structured, but with fruit to spare, leaving a brilliantly detailed aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2047. 8 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"The 2016 Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze Grand Cru has the most complex and profound bouquet among the five wines tasted from this vineyard: blackberry, raspberry preserve, wet limestone and light tobacco aromas wafting from the glass with stunning precision. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity. This is so harmonious and poised, effortless towards the finish that gently caresses the mouth to such an extent that you could be tempted to drink it now. However, it will clearly deliver 30 or 40 years of drinking pleasure. Stunning. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting." Neal Martin, Vinous.com
