(just one new barrel out of seven): Dark red with ruby tones. Essence-of-Burgundy perfume of raspberry, white pepper, cardamom, Cuban tobacco, coffee and underbrush. Outrageously dense and intense on entry, then brilliantly delineated, penetrating and sweet in the middle palate, with its tangy red berry and earth flavors enlivened by building notes of menthol, rose petal and Oriental spices. With its uncanny energy and complexity and its unflagging finishing thickness, this noble, electric wine has all the elements for greatness. (And I could drink it today for its perfect balance and digestibility!)(ST)
The 2015 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru has a comely, sumptuous and yet beautifully defined bouquet of wild strawberry, red cherries, minerals and crushed rose petals. It is total seduction. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, crisp acidity, not a hair out of place. The silkiness of the texture is just wonderful and the length is as good as you will find in the Côtes de Nuits this vintage. This is a stunning 2015 from Perrot-Minot, perhaps the best in recent years.
This is perhaps the most floral-infused nose in the entire range with its lovely and notably spicy array of violet, lilac, lavender and rose petal-scented aromas that display additional notes of plum liqueur and earth. There is excellent richness and tension to the full-bodied, powerful and concentrated flavors that exhibit good minerality on the tremendously persistent and beautifully well-balanced finish. This is firm though and unlike some of the wines that should be reasonably approachable young, this is unlikely to be one of them.
