The 2002 Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze Grand Cru has an Oriental bouquet with hoisin notes infusing the red fruit – quite attractive but certainly more exotic than its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grip on the entry. This is well balanced with slightly tarry red fruit, tobacco and a pinch of white pepper towards the long finish. Very fine. Tasted at Sarah Marsh MW’s 2002 Red Burgundy tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035
