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. 0.41 hectares from the Clair Dau divide in 1985. 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. Fine and spicy nose that is lifted with classic ‘Beze’ spice, this is an incredible sweet spice of incredible definition. The fruit seems extremely open as if dried yet so fresh. The palate is coated with spicy phenolics and bramble fruit. Round yet very, very long.

Pre Arrival Offer

We embrace the classic and historic 'en Primeur' system. It originated in Bordeaux and translates directly to 'of the first'. While in Bordeaux it gives the ability to a buyer to purchase the wine still in barrel, at The French Wine Centre it enables our clients to secure their preferred wines a month or two before the wine arrives on our shores. There is also a significant saving.
