A beautiful, intense ruby-red colour. Powerful but refined aromas. When the wine is young, the aromas are reminiscent of black cherry and dark chocolate. With age, they evolve towards notes of undergrowth, truffle and liquorice. After 15 years or so, the aromas of candied fruit remain but are mingled with nuances of leather and musk. Tannins provide a good structure, perfectly balanced by the velvety texture of the wine. The long aftertaste brings back the aromas of cherry and liquorice: a kaleidoscope of sensations.
Vinous 92 - Moderately saturated medium red. Pungent aromas of minerals, flowers, spices and red licorice. With its lively acidity, this wine conveys excellent precision and intensity to its wild plum and floral flavors. On the light side for Clos de Beze but the tannins are suave and fine-grained and the floral finish is refined, subtle and long. Spreads out horizontally to saturate the palate and pique the taste buds.
