Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94-96

The 1997 Chambertin Clos de Beze was harvested at an unheard of (for Burgundy) 14.2 natural potential alcohol. This black/purple-colored benchmark-setter displays saliva-inducing cookie dough and cherry syrup aromas. Immensely ripe and concentrated, yet pure, fresh, and noble, it conquers the taster with unending layers of jammy compote-like fruit flavors. Awesomely dense, deep, fresh, and refined, this stunner has the potential to ultimately merit a score in the high 90s. It seamlessly combines the New World's over-ripeness and fruit-forward characteristics with Burgundy's trademark balance, elegance, and structure. The lucky few that will secure a few bottles of this nectar should note that it should be at its peak of maturity between 2003-2015. Bravo!

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94(+?)

Healthy dark red. Superripe aromas of crystallized black raspberry, rose petal, violet, iron, baking spices and meat. Huge entry, then almost painfully intense, with superb extract and great thrust.

Exhilarating hints of dark berries, mint, flowers and minerals give this wine great complexity and verve. Would come across as thick if it weren't so sharply focused. The firm tannins are buried in fruit on the extremely long, tactile finish. Should enjoy a long and spectacular evolution in bottle.

Burghound | Rating: 92

Strong Gevrey earth notes marry with big, black, intense and remarkably complex crushed fruit aromas that lead to huge, indeed even massive and intense flavors underpinned by big but very ripe tannins and this finishes with almost painful intensity and super length. If there is a niggle, despite the impressive concentration, ripeness (though by no means over ripe) and sheer depth, it's the absence of much finesse though this may very well arrive with time as this should live for a long time. Consistent notes.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 89

Very plummy style, with licorice and easy fruit, though it lacks midpalate concentration. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and toasty, smoky flavors on the finish.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
