Tasting Notes

Don't miss!
A classic and elegant Clos de Bèze nose is composed of spicy and earthy if restrained red currant and floral aromas that are nuanced by subtle wisps of humus and exotic tea. The sense of elegance is reinforced by the fine-grain of the tannins on the wonderfully pure and intense broad-shouldered flavors that possess a lovely minerality on the hugely long, balanced and harmonious finish. This is good stuff that should amply repay extended cellaring. Drink: 2028+

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (57), January 2015

Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru from Faiveley has a pleasantly austere and reserved bouquet, fine mineralité underneath, aromatics that simply need time in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity and an appealing edginess. Impressive tension here as black fruit merges with red towards the structured finish that expresses the terroir with style, although it tends to clam up in the glass. It should give two decades of drinking pleasure. Tasted September 2016. 2018 - 2040

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (Interim- E), November 2016

This rich red is laced with smoky, stony elements flanking the black cherry and black currant flavors. There's also a hint of black pepper as this cruises to the long finish. Should be fine once all the components integrate. Best from 2019 through 2032. 80 cases imported.

Bruce Sanderson, WineSpectator.com, February 2016

Mid crimson. Refined aroma of subtle dark-red fruit. Refined on the palate too – cool dark fruit, super-fine texture and lovely harmony in a lighter elegant style, making the most of the vintage. 2017 - 2028
