Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Chambertin Clos De Beze 2016
|Region||France, Burgundy, Morey Saint Denis|
The 2016 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru was made from two cuvées, one destemmed and the other not, so that there is around 30% whole bunch. It has a very well-defined bouquet with outstanding tension and focus. The palate is pure and silky smooth, more red fruit than black, very harmonious with very well-integrated new oak (80%). This is the best that the domaine has ever made. Period. Chapeau Nicolas and Caroline.
Rich in black cherry and black currant flavors, a velvety texture and tannins, this red shows youthful harmony, yet will need time to reveal its charms. Elegant and succulent, featuring a long, spice- and mineral-infused finish. Best from 2023 through 2045. 60 cases imported.
