Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94-96

Clair's 2005 Chambertin Clos de Beze - from vines going back to 1913 - displays black raspberry, cassis, licorice, and sea spray in the nose. Delivering a formidably concentrated but unusually vigorous and dynamic impression of this great site, it bursts with black fruit and meat juices, along with soy sauce, then showers the palate with site-typical rose petals in a finish of brightness, grip, and vibratory intensity. Here is a thoroughbred that is a real racer ... but I would expect to wait a decade after placing my bets.

Burghound | Rating: 95

(two-thirds of the vines were planted in 1912 and the remainder in 1973) The most complete wine here with a spicy, earthy, gamy and strikingly elegant if presently reserved nose of musky black cherry fruit aromas that introduce rich, sweet and mouth coating flavors that explode on the strikingly long finish. This is a classy thoroughbred of a wine with superb complexity, impeccable balance and huge length, all delivered with both grace and power. Be prepared to be patient however as this will need plenty of time.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94(+?)

($237) Good deep red. Austere but highly complex nose offers dark plum, smoked meat, minerals, spices and earth, along with a whiff of cinders. Then almost surprisingly fat and sweet, with outstanding volume and solidity to its highly complex flavors of black cherry, brown spices, mocha, dried flowers and minerals. A huge wine for this cellar yet it remains light on its feet. The finish brings a touch of minty medicinal austerity and building tannins, suggesting that this impressively powerful yet classy wine will require a good dozen years of cellaring.

Lively, delicate, dancing fruit. Very, very lively. Very exciting. Lovely race. Long. Reverberation. Real layers and tip top.

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.
