    The 2012 Chambertin Clos-de-Beze Grand Cru, which like the Chapelle-Chambertin is domaine-owned, has a more voluminous, multi-faceted bouquet with engaging incense and mineral notes infusing the beautifully defined black fruits. The palate is very well balanced on the entry with more tension and nervosite than the Chambertin, building effortlessly towards a quite regal, sophisticated finish whose mineralite lingers long in the mouth. Outstanding.

    Bright, dark red. High-pitched perfume of blueberry and huckleberry complicated by inky minerality and crushed stone. The palate offers extraordinary wild intensity and medicinal reserve to the densely packed, sharply delineated flavors of black fruits, licorice and pungent minerals. Transcendent, soil-driven pinot noir with the energy and structure for a long and graceful evolution in bottle. Builds endlessly on the aftertaste. This fruit was harvested with 12.8% potential alcohol and chaptalized to 13.4%. One of the potential superstars of the vintage.

    Here the nose is largely if not completely similar to that of the Chambertin but in this case there is a bit more spice to the perceptible riper nose. There is a sophisticated mouth feel to the velvety and extract rich big-bodied flavors that coat the mouth with exceptionally firm but phenolically mature tannins on the explosively long finish. This is a 'wow' wine and very much worth a special search to find.

    Taut and linear, with cherry, strawberry, smoke, tobacco, graphite, iron, vanilla and clove flavors. This is unyielding at this point, despite the complexity, with a steely structure and a lingering tobacco finish. The terrific length indicates the ultimate potential of this bottling.
