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.

Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru has a very perfumed bouquet with incense and rose petal scents filtering through the black plum and cranberry fruit. The oak here is well integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, touches of black olive and Japanese seaweed, leading to a structured finish with good weight, albeit one that needs time. This is a classy close-up de Bèze from Bruno Clair. Tasted September 2017.
