Chambertin Clos de Beze 2013 Faiveley
€ 216,59 (incl. Vat)
Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru from Faiveley has a pleasantly austere and reserved bouquet, fine mineralite underneath, aromatics that simply need time in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity and an appealing edginess. Impressive tension here as black fruit merges with red towards the structured finish that expresses the terroir with style, although it tends to clam up in the glass. It should give two decades of drinking pleasure.
This rich red is laced with smoky, stony elements flanking the black cherry and black currant flavors. There's also a hint of black pepper as this cruises to the long finish. Should be fine once all the components integrate.
