The Chambertin Clos De Bèze has an intense purple colour with a fragrance of small red fruits and liquorice on the nose providing strong aromatic majestic quality. On the palate the attack is balanced, clear, sound and rich. Its melted, spicy and precise tannins offer roundness and lightness on the finish. With a hint of rose, this elegant wine suggests its sensuality. A wine to be laid down. Food Match: This great wine is perfect with fine food, suchas lièvre à la royale (hare in red wine), estouffade de perdrix (partridge with lentils) and dishes with truffles.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru includes 45% whole bunch fruit and was matured in 60% new oak. The nose is generous and perfumed with macerated black cherries, wild strawberry and light iodine notes, the new oak nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp, orange zest-tinged entry. The tannins are quite firm and lend a rigid framework to this wine, this blend from a new oak barrel suggesting that 60% will be the right amount and allow the fruit to come through. Still, I would like a little more breeding here...more aristocracy...this is Clos de Bèze after all!

Wine SpectatorA lean, sinewy style, boasting cherry, currant, spice and leafy flavors. This is coiled like a steel wire, with well-integrated tannins and spice notes dominating the finish. Best from 2022 through 2038. 10 cases imported.
