Grand Cru Red Burgundy - Pinot Noir. Chambertin Clos de Beze is one of Burgundy’s finest vineyards. The king of wines and the wine of kings! Clos de Beze has an easterly slope that is steeper than Chambertin, ensuring perfect drainage and mid slope positioning. The upper portion has white marly soil while the lower is brown and chalky. Both are rich in mineral salts and calcareous debris. Chambertin Clos de Beze produces wines with balance between finesse and power, however the shape of the wine is absolutely round. Originally planted in 1904 with considerable replanting since, it has an incredibly high vine density of 14,000 vines per hectare. The wine is treated the same as the Bonnes Mares with 50% new wood and 50% whole bunch. Eight barrels are made. Floral nuances and plum, bramble, sweet spice, violets, lavender; all of which are ever changing and polarising. The palate is open, round and powerful. Baking spice, plum, bramble, violets, suave and velvety. "A punch of floral aroma – wide, complex, energetic, more direction not more complexity, but this is easier to assimilate today than the Bonnes-Mares. Ooh, that’s so good – bravo wine! Such an excellent Bèze!" Bill Nanson, The Burgundy Report.
