100% new oak. Intense, splendidly purple somehow nose. Black fruits and liqueur-like. Lots of structure and very embryonic. The oak is still pretty obvious. Great framework. Energy.
Anticipated maturity: 2024-2040
Saturated, bright dark red Knockout soil-inflected aromas of black raspberry, boysenberry, mocha and gibiers, with the wine’s 100% new oak element nicely integrated Boasts outstanding sucrosité for the vintage but strong saline minerality and firm acidity perfectly counterpoint the wine’s sweetness This very large-scaled, densely packed wine spreads out horizontally on the inexorable rising finish, saturating the palate with a fine dusting of tannins and shimmering minerality This stunning Clos de Bèze has all the elements for greatness
Anticipated maturity: 2026-2040
