The 2012 Chambertin “Clos de Bèze” from Louis Jadot is another superb bottle in the
making, delivering a deep, pure and primary bouquet of red and black cherries, red plums, dark
soil tones, grilled meat, a touch of nutskin, woodsmoke, mustard seed and cedar. On the palate
the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with plenty of structure, a superb core
of fruit, strong soil inflection, ripe tannins and outstanding length and grip on the perfectly
balanced and still very, very young finish. 2025-2075. John Gilman 95

Outstanding. Wine Advocate 95-97
