We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The Chapelle-Chambertin grand cru vineyard faces east on a well-drained, gentle slope on the lower hillside east of Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. It is said that the small Notre Dame de Bèze chapel on this site was intentionally burned in the 1830s so that the land could be planted to more vines. This wine comes from a 2.2-hectare (5-acre) plot covered with thin, stony, limestone soils, around the original La Chapelle vineyard; the vines were planted in 1947. Color: Deep ruby. Bouquet: Disarming, hedonistic; violets and honeysuckle. Palate: Quintessential elegance; silk-on-velvet; deliciously fragrant length.

Wine SpectatorA linear style, this fuses spice and sandalwood notes with cherry and raspberry fruit. Shows fine concentration and intensity on the long finish. Best from 2019 through 2032. 18 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru has a rather straightforward bouquet that lacks the personality and energy displayed by others. There is some agreeable red berry fruit here, but it seems rustic and lacks grace. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy red berry fruit, rough hewn and broad shouldered, a gutsy Chapelle-Chambertin that is missing some breeding. Tasted September 2016.
