Average critic rating : 93.5 points



An intensely spicy nose of natural spice as well as background notes of oak spice also reflects aromas of earth, underbrush, humus, red and dark berry fruit and exotic tea nuances. There is excellent phenolic maturity to the supporting structural elements that shape the precise, intense and overtly muscular flavors that exude a fine minerality on the delicious and palate coating finish. There is less obvious acidity here compared to the Clos St. Jacques and slightly better persistence. This should also age well and require at least 12 to 15 years as the tannins are presently quite prominent. Tasted: Jan 15, 2014. Drink: 2026+



Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Chambertin Clos de Bèze 2011 from Bruno Clair has a very succinct bouquet with red cherries, crushed strawberry and a deft touch of bergamot that is detailed and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent, ripe tannins and very well-judged acidity that keeps the whole thing tense and poised. This feels natural and refined with wonderful poise and grace on the delineated finish. There is some oak to be fully absorbed here, but the class shows through. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014
