Professional Reviews For This Wine


Vinous | Rating: 97

What a treat it is to taste the 2011 Chambertin Clos de Beze. Smoke, incense, tar, blueberry jam and French oak meld together the glass. In 2011, the Beze boasts stunning depth and resonance from the very first taste. Readers who are lucky enough to find the Beze should not hesitate, as it is pure magic. At the same time, it won't be ready to deliver its full potential for a decade-plus.

Burghound | Rating: 93-96

A potently expressive nose blends both wood and natural spice together with distinctly cool, pure and ripe wild red berries, earth and underbrush. The palate impression is a gorgeous combination of power and refinement along with flat out superb complexity on the explosively long, focused and beautifully well-balanced finish. The supporting structure is dense but fine and this should prove to be a moderately long-lived example.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94(+?)

Good dark red. Expressive aromas of blueberry, woodsmoke, earth and game, plus an ineffable floral complexity. Moderately sweet and very intense, with purple fruit and spice flavors conveying an impression of energy. Tight, serious wine with outstanding breadth and a firm tannic spine to support a slow and graceful evolution in bottle. Leaves behind intense black- and blueberry flavors on the building aftertaste. In November, Rousseau told me he preferred 2011 to 2012 but noted that the '12s demonstrated their terroir character more accurately.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

The 2011 Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru is showing a lot of oak on the nose (100% new) that I feel is excessive. The palate follows suit, showing a lot of oak that rather drowns out the character of Clos de Beze. Let us see how it ages, but at the moment this seems laden down by expectation and perhaps a little overzealousness in the cellars?

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.
