"This is not yet ready to give up its dark, promising secrets: there is concentration and firmness, and some of the chocolate tones that have been so consistent in the domaine's style. But there is a poetic, elderberry touch as well as something wholesome and even complete at the core that feels natural and right. That is has the customary sumptuousness goes without saying." Anne Krebiehl MW, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 55

"Here too the nose is quite ripe yet remains fresh and inviting with its more elegant combination of spice and floral elements adding breadth to the red currant, plum, violet and underbrush scents where there is just enough wood to remark upon. The more refined and highly energetic medium weight plus flavors also display more evident minerality on the sleek, focused and explosively long finale. I very much like the interplay of dry extract, tannin and supporting acidity as the sense of harmony and vibrancy is lovely." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 65

"The 2015 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru is raised in 80% new oak with 20% whole bunch. It has a very detailed and focused bouquet with precise blackberry, raspberry and morello cherry aromas neatly infused with mineral scents. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, powerful without losing control and building towards a very structured, spicy finish. Whilst I would still dial down the oak to 50-60%, nevertheless it remains a very well-crafted Chambertin with plenty of substance and ambition, and that ain't a bad thing when you are a Clos-de-Bèze."

"Some suggestion of leaf mould on the nose. Sweet broad fruit on the front palate though just a little less majestic than the Bonnes Mares tasted alongside. Edgy and slightly tentative at this stage." JancisRobinson.com
