    From very old vines that produce a wine of consistent finesse and class year-in, year-out, Gerard Raphet's three and a half barrels of 2005 Chambertin Clos de Beze offers a remarkably intricate nose of black tea, musk, rose hips, rose petal, fennel, citrus zest, black fruits and smoked meat. Like a tea-smoked, spiced duck drenched in macerated cherries and black raspberries on the palate, this beauty combines creaminess of texture with brightness, concentration with elegance, and a superb interplay of fruit, stone and meat in its long finish. Give it at least a dozen years in the cellar and look for at least another eight to ten years of rewarding performance after that.

  • Jean Raphet finally passed control of the domaine to his son Gerard in 2002, though his son had been tending the vineyards for over a decade. The wines from this property are remarkable and brilliant renditions of Pinot Noir. Equal parts caressing finesse, fruit purity and aromatic bliss, they have excellent track records at all levels. From the Bourgogne, to the mere cases production of the Grand Cru Clos de Beze, Raphet wines are consistently palate pleasing.
