DESCRIPTION

Burghound (Allen Meadows) 91-93

“Moderate wood frames exuberantly spicy and fresh red and dark berry fruit that carries ample Gevrey-style earth and underbrush influences. There is good size, weight and volume to the admirably intense broad-shouldered flavors that evidence a light minerality on the impressively long but not really austere finish. This is a big but harmonious effort that should age gracefully for years to come though note that it will likely need at least 10.” (January, 2016)

 

Vinous Media (Stephen Tanzer) 92+
“Bright medium red. Strong oak tones partly mask aromas of red berries, rose petal and medicinal menthol. At once dense and taut, with savory, firm-edged flavors of cranberry, minerals and white pepper giving the middle palate an incisive character. Not a fleshy wine--in fact a bit youthfully compressed today--but finishes perfumed, focused and long, with pepper and saline mineral notes displaying a slightly tart edge.” (March, 2017)

 

Wine Advocate (Neal Martin) 91-93
“The 2014 Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru includes 45% whole bunch fruit and was matured in 60% new oak. The nose is generous and perfumed with macerated black cherries, wild strawberry and light iodine notes, the new oak nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp, orange zest-tinged entry. The tannins are quite firm and lend a rigid framework to this wine, this blend from a new oak barrel suggesting that 60% will be the right amount and allow the fruit to come through.” (December, 2015)

 

Wine Spectator (Bruce Sanderson) 93
“A lean, sinewy style, boasting cherry, currant, spice and leafy flavors. This is coiled like a steel wire, with well-integrated tannins and spice notes dominating the finish. Best from 2022 through 2038. 10 cases imported.” (September, 2017)
