Tasting Notes

The 2015 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru is a class act in the making, perhaps one of the finest barrel samples that I have tasted from Drouhin. This gem has a gorgeous and extraordinarily pure bouquet with crushed strawberry, pomegranate and overripe orange scents that are exquisite and beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with super fine, almost filigree tannin that seem to caress the senses. It constitutes the most sophisticated of Drouhin's 2015s with ineffable finesse on the finish that lingers so long in the mouth. This is simply a brilliant wine.

Score: 96/98Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (228), December 2016

**Note: 50% whole clusters**
An attractively spicy and notably ripe if markedly reserved nose offers up notes of plum, cassis and red currant that are copiously laced with floral nuances. The rich, full-bodied and quite serious broad-shouldered flavors also possess first-rate mid-palate concentration along with evident minerality on the driving and powerful if less refined finish. This is certainly impressive but the Griotte has that something extra in 2015.
