Faiveley 2014 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru

Description

"Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, Faiveley's 2014 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru has a ravishing, pure and sensual bouquet with red cherries and crushed strawberry fruit laced with minerals. It needs another two or three years to fully assimilate. The palate is beautifully balanced with fine tannin, very focused and tensile with shimmering, effervescent red fruit fanning out on the finish. Stunning—but it is unquestionably built for the long-term. Tasted September 2017." Robert Parker 96 Points

"A whiff of chalk in the aroma leads to flavors of strawberry, currant and cherry in this racy red. There is an element of tension between fruit and mineral elements, offering a silky texture and a dense matrix of tannins. The long aftertaste is resonant and compelling. Best from 2023 through 2045." Wine Spectator 96 Points

"Bright, full red. Alluring, terroir-driven aromas of raspberry, minerals, dried flowers, smoky oak and game. Supple on entry, then reticent and taut in the middle, but already showing outstanding energy and depth, not to mention a slightly musky wildness, to its flavors of raspberry, smoky oak and dried flowers. Between the wine's firm acidity, great mineral verve, strong tongue-dusting tannins and finishing grip, this outstanding Clos de Bèze is going to require considerable patience and should evolve positively for up to three decades. My bottle held up for days in the recorked bottle." Stephen Tanzer 94+ Points
