There are six barrels of the 2017 Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru, a wine that was vinified with large amounts of whole cluster once again this year, and its bouquet of orange rind, peony, cinnamon and red berry fruit is strongly marked by stem inclusion. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, ample and delicate, with melting tannins, juicy acids and a sapid finish. Charming and open-knit, to my taste the technique is dominating the terroir here, though readers who live for the distinctive signature of whole-cluster fermentation will want to add a few points to my score.

Crazy aromas of smoked meat, white pepper, dried fruit, orange peel and flowers. Full body, round and chewy tannins and a flavorful and intense finish. Shows so much richness and depth. A great wine for the vintage.
