(from a 1.29 ha parcel). A classic and elegant Clos de Bèze nose is composed of spicy and earthy if restrained red currant and floral aromas that are nuanced by subtle wisps of humus and exotic tea. The sense of elegance is reinforced by the fine-grain of the tannins on the wonderfully pure and intense broad-shouldered flavors that possess a lovely minerality on the hugely long, balanced and harmonious finish. This is good stuff that should amply repay extended cellaring. (93-95)/2028+
