Good medium red. Sappy red fruits, black cherry, smoke, mocha and pepper on the exotic nose. Rich, supple and sweet, with lovely minerality contributing to the impression of underlying structure. This has delicious fruit. Finishes long, juicy and ripely tannic. Here's a 2000 with early appeal and solid aging potential. 91+ (ST)
The 2000 Chambertin-Clos de Bèze is a real treat to taste as it is quite expressive, especially in its aromatics. Deep and implosive on the palate, the 2000 possesses striking textural richness, but it is also going to need at least a few more years in bottle to fully blossom. Nevertheless, this is a strong showing. With time in the glass, the bouquet begins to open up, but the 2000 remains an infant. The 2000 is an unusually suave, silky Bèze that emphasizes grace over power. (AG)
A ripe, spicy and still wonderfully fresh nose features almost fully mature aromas that are nuanced by hints of earth and underbrush that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is outstanding richness to the pliant and lush medium-bodied flavors that deliver a beautifully long and mouth coating finish. While the supporting tannins are almost fully resolved and thus this could easily be enjoyed now, I would hold my remaining bottles for another 3 to 5 years first. But the good news is that this is sufficiently close to peaking that it would not be a vinous crime to enjoy the '00 Bèze now.
