Chambertin Clos de Beze 2015 Bouchard Pere & Fils
|Brand||Bouchard Pere & Fils|
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
The 2015 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru comes from purchased fruit, always from the same owner and parcel. It has a pleasant bouquet: cranberry, sous-bois and dried orange peel emerging with time, though I would like to see more tension come through once this is in bottle. The palate is well balanced with supple tannin, finely judged acidity and nicely integrated new oak. This actually seems to meliorate in the mouth and I particularly like the harmony on the finish. It should turn into a sophisticated red Burgundy, albeit affording it 4-6 years in bottle. Good work here.

Round and juicy, offering a plush well of cherry, raspberry, tobacco and spice flavors. Vivid, revealing broad, ripe tannins on the finish. Shows terrific length and overall balance, ending with an elegant feel.
