($221) Bright, full deep red. Pungently mineral aromas of raspberry, dried flowers, flint, smoke, mocha and underbrush. A monumental wine of ungodly intensity and extract without any impression of excess weight. The dusty, tactile extract fills the mouth with spicy, minerally, high-toned perfume, and the wine ascends to an even higher level on the peacock's tail of a finish, which boasts great energy and persistence. I drank this bottle over a period of four nights (one of us has to show some restraint), and oxygen couldn't kill, much less flatten, its treble tones, even as its volume and sweetness expanded. I hope I have a chance to revisit this at its peak, in about 20 years.

Deep colour and very headily seductive nose. Amazing concentration and layers. Without simply being sweet and rich. Admirable superiority. Great racy dry texture but with truly throat warming fruit. Really exciting stuff. Long, concentrated yet dry and delicate. Great freshness.

Wine Advocate | 93-95

Deep black cherry, charred meatiness, rose and licorice give away the identity of Jadot's 2005 Chambertin Clos de Beze. Firm tannins and mouth-filling but bitter black cherry fruit, along with black licorice, wet stones, smoky black tea and Latakia tobacco feature on the palate, and there is a savage grip in the the finish. This lacks the refinement and elegance of many of the best 2005s from this great site, but bids fair to make up for this in sheer intensity and mysteriously complex depth. Here is a potentially ageless wine that doesn't merely typify the dark side of 2005, but is a veritable Darth Vader of the vintage.

A monolith now, with a core of sweet cherry locked in by the firm structure. There's also a lot of spicy oak. The tannins are substantial and dominate today, but all the components are there. A very fresh, lively red, with a long finish.
