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
