Wine Advocate | Rating: 95The 2014 Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru has a beautiful, very fragrant bouquet that has exquisite delineation and complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite saline in the mouth with sappy red berry fruit, a hint of cola percolating through with a very focused, harmonious finish. This is an exquisite expression of the vineyard, a wine with a long future ahead.Drink Dates: 2018-2032Author: Neal Martin
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
