Tasting Notes

A ripe, spicy and expressive multi-layered nose of red and black pinot fruit, earth, game, smoke and hints of anise, clove and exotic Oriental tea gives way to rich, cool, suave and very pure flavors that are lovely, refined and classy. This is understated in the mouth and possesses an ultra sophisticated mouth feel on the superbly long, focused and driving finish. This is not a huge wine by the standards of a classic Bèze but everything is in perfect harmony and it should be capable of 30+ years of positive evolution.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (26), April 2007

The Drouhin 2005 Chambertin Clos de Beze - which combines purchased fruit with a bit from their domaine - displays a classic nose of black cherry, licorice, white pepper, and rose petal; stains the palate with its intensity of fruit, herb and flower while displaying fantastic elegance, polish and silken refinement of texture; and grips for dear life in a finish marked by stunningly vivid floral perfume. This superb Pinot should not be revisited for at least 5-7 years and will doubtless be worth holding for twice that amount of time.
