Domaine Bruno Clair Chambertin Clos de Bèze 2011


SKU 10735


We have the privilege to farm this exceptional terroir. Two thirds of the plot were planted in 1912 and the remainder in 1972. Our plot extends upwards on the slope. The upper part, poorer and stony, gives an aromatic wine of great finesse whereas the lower part, richer and clayey brings power and richness. The vintage thus obtained makes the synthesis of these qualities combining finesse and power, richness and complexity. Wine for ageing.

BurghoundAn intensely spicy nose of natural spice as well as background notes of oak spice also reflects aromas of earth, underbrush, humus, red and dark berry fruit and exotic tea nuances. There is excellent phenolic maturity to the supporting structural elements that shape the precise, intense and overtly muscular flavors that exude a fine minerality on the delicious and palate coating finish. There is less obvious acidity here compared to the Clos St. Jacques and slightly better persistence. This should also age well and require at least 12 to 15 years as the tannins are presently quite prominent.
