Dark, bright red. Multidimensional, soil-driven nose features wild red berries, smoke, minerals, dried rose, mocha, underbrush and an exhilarating suggestion of white flowers. Like pure silk in the mouth but with pungent mineral lift giving this voluminous, extract-rich wine a nearly weightless impression. As fat, full and solid as this is, the overall impression is of finesse and perfume. Finishes with extraordinary mounting persistence and perfectly buffered, noble tannins. (ST)
A spicy and ripe nose of stupendous breadth and depth is framed in obvious toast that continues onto the supple, rich, textured and big-boned flavors that are borderline massive yet the focus, detail and harmony of expression all retain admirable clarity and purity. Another one of those 'wow' wines as the intensity of the flavors etch themselves onto the palate and the finale positively explodes. Be aware that this will require plenty of cellar time to come around. Drink: 2020+ *Don't Miss!*
The Bouchard 2005 Chambertin Clos de Beze displays a classic aroma of this singularly great site: rose petal, licorice, black cherry, and beef stock. In the mouth it offers intensity along with lift and elegance, its tannins ultra-fine and its finish long, savory, and subtly salty, with deep fruit and carnality. (DS)
