The 2018 Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze Grand Cru has a supremely well-defined, stony, intense bouquet that is just as detailed as the Chambertin, if not more so. This has fathomless depth. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, taut and linear at first then fanning out beautifully toward the finish. Immense grace and grandeur combine to make an utterly compelling Clos-de-Bèze.

(Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru, Perrot-Minot, Red) If anything, the dense purple colour is even headier than for the Chambertin. The nose takes coaxing out, which is a good sign, then the fruit erupts on the palate into a luxurious deep red fruit with a coating of velvet. I don’t find it quite as complete on the palate as the Chambertin though. Christophe Perrot-Minot finds this the more refined wine of the two, I prefer the even-handed density of the Chambertin. But this could be discussed for hours!
