The 2015 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru was served after the Chambertin this year. That's often a sign of which wine they think might have the edge that year, since it is interchangeable, depending on how the wind blows. It has a deeper, perhaps even more penetrating bouquet than the 2015 Chambertin: scents of raspberry preserve, red plum, crushed stone and incense that gain intensity with seemingly every swirl of the glass. The palate has a sorbet-like freshness on the entry, veins of blood orange, white pepper, tangy marmalade infusing the black and red fruit, with impressive structure and precision on the finish. Could a Clos-de-Bèze be any better from barrel? Answer: No.
