The 2015 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru has another very composed and delineated bouquet that for me attests more complexity and terroir-expression than the Chambertin. This is just exquisite - you can feel the vineyard here. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, a keen line of acidity, very supple tannins with a surfeit of finesse and refinement on the finish. This is one of the best releases from Louis Jadot this vintage out of over 100 samples reviewed. These tasting notes belong under the umbrella of "Louis Jadot", though it should be pointed out that these bottlings are under "Domaine Louis Jadot", that is to say that the company owns the vines rather than through contracts with growers. See also "Maison Louis Jadot", "Domaine Gagey" and "Domaine des Héritiers Jadot".
Plenty of wood and menthol elements mark the wonderfully spicy and notably ripe nose that combines notes of red berry fruit liqueur, a panoply of spices and a whisper of mocha. The highly seductive and concentrated flavors possess an opulent mid-palate mouth feel that is borderline unctuous, all wrapped in a gorgeously long, complex and well-balanced finish. While the sheer density of material should enable this to be approached after only a decade or so, if you wish to see it at its peak, this too is pretty much a “buy and forget you own it” wine. (93-96)/2035+
(destemmed): Bright, moderately saturated medium red. Alluring, liqueur-like aromas of strawberry, raspberry, cranberry and rose petal are lifted by pungent soil-driven minerality. Wonderfully silky yet utterly weightless, with the urgent flavors of raspberry, pomegranate, spices and flowers conveying outstanding clarity and stunning high-toned sex appeal. Finishes with utterly suave, noble, broad tannins and a vibrant suggestion of red licorice. Wonderfully sappy, elegant wine. Barnier notes that Jadot's Clos de Bèze is typically quite open during its time in the cellar and doesn't really shut down after the bottling.
Featuring expressive aromas and flavors of cherry, raspberry, currant, mineral, clove and toasty spice, this red is solidly built and extremely fresh, with fine balance and a terrific aftertaste. There is a sense of purity and elegance here that will take some time to reveal. Best from 2022 through 2043.
