Medium red. Pungent red berry and mocha aromas are lifted by powerful crushed-stone minerality and complicated by an ineffable floral/earthy perfume. A real essence of 2008 on the palate, with outstanding sappy cut and penetration to the flavors of cherry, red berries, minerals and spice oil. The building finish spreads out inexorably to saturate the palate. Rigorous and stimulating: a wine of extraordinary complexity, energy and depth. This was one of my top 2008s from barrel a year ago and it's at least as impressive in bottle. (ST)
A classic amalgam of dark cherry, licorice, and rose petal entices the taster of Jadot’s 2008 Chambertin Clos de Beze, which displays an uncanny alliance of creaminess and vivacity, richness and almost delicate elegance. Brown spices, chalk, iodine, and cyanic fruit pit bitterness add further counterpoint to the wine’s caressing texture and sweetness of fruit. This finishes with terrific persistence. I envision at least two decades and perhaps a quarter century’s fascination and enticement. (DS)
A slightly more expressive and notably spicier nose of primarily red berry fruit aromas that display ample floral and earth nuances that can also be found on the rich and full-bodied flavors that possess slightly more complexity and culminate in a serious, powerful and long finish that is a bit more persistent. I very much like the vibrancy and beautiful sense of completeness. A serious Bèze built to age. (Drink starting 2023)
