The nose has a restrained, mineral edge. Gun-smoke and flinty notes, wild herbs and sous bois with super fine cherries, as well as crushed red flowers. All very delicate this early in its journey. The palate has a sleek and appealingly powerful feel that expands fully on fine, long and fresh tannins

The palate has a sleek and appealingly powerful feel that expands fully on fine, long and fresh tannins. The regal finish is already impressive. Try from 2023

Rose petal, fennel, licorice, raspberry and dark cherry, and decadent gaminess in the nose of Bouchard?s 2007 Chambertin Clos de Beze lead into a correspondingly complex palate that combines a silken texture with bright, penetrating fruit of a sort rare in 2007. Persistently alluring rose and peony perfume lends persistent allure as this finishes with delightful and profound interaction of fruit, mineral, floral, and animal elements. It should be worth following for at least 12-15 years.
Drink Date 2010 - 2025

The most prestigious Grand Cru in Gevrey-Chambertin is also one of the oldest walled vineyards in France. The famous "clos" was created in the 7th century by the monks from the abbey of B?ze in the best situated place on their vast estate. In 1395, Philippe le Hardi decided to improve the quality of the wines and banned the gamay variety in favour of pinot noir on his land. Later, Chambertin Clos-de-B?ze shared the imperial crown with Chambertin: during his reign, Napoleon would drink no other wines.

TASTING NOTE: Intense and complex aromas on the nose. Structured - though not excessively - and with lovely fleshiness, this is a sumptuous wine with a great ageing potential.

AGEING POTENTIAL: 10 years and more

HARVEST: manual, in small cases of 13 kg. Careful manual sorting of each grape.
