Chambertin Clos de Bèze, Marchand-Tawse 2015
This is reduced to the point where mercaptans are present (think burnt rubber odors). In the plus column is the outstanding intensity displayed by the mineral-driven, powerful and muscular big-bodied flavors that deliver superb persistence on the beautifully complex finish. Mercaptans always worry me because while they can be eliminated if properly treated, there is no guarantee that they will be without a deleterious effect on the flavors. In sum, this is a question mark for now.
