The 2013 Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze Grand Cru comes from their own contract parcel and purchased fruit, cropped October 6-7, with partial whole cluster and raised for 14 months in 500 liter barrels. It appears to have more harmony than the Charmes-Chambertin at the moment, more floral in personality, to the point where it is more Charmes-Chambertin than the Charmes-Chambertin! The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, supple in the mouth, with good volume. There is plenty of red and black fruit here. although it is missing a little complexity toward the finish.
Winespectator / James Suckling (93)
Lush and fleshy for the vintage, with plenty of juicy cherry and raspberry fruit. Firmly built, this develops on the palate, leading to a long, fruit-, mineral- and spice-tinged aftertaste. Combines finesse and intensity.
Some whole clusters but not at all obvious ? will give elegance in age, says Veronique Drouhin. Mid cherry red. Smooth and rather hidden. A touch peppery, the fruit subtle but well pitched. Extreme refinement and excellent length, the tannins so fine and dry.?
