It is a complex wine with a deep color and great length in the mouth. The aromatic palette is very rich and delicate with a dominant of black berries and oriental spices. Vin all velvety and finesse.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru was showing just a little more reduction than the Chambertin this year, though it seems to dissipate and reveal profoundly complex dark berry and sous-bois scents, hints of truffle, bay leaf and clove. However, the palate clearly has more density and more robust tannins that together suggest it is endowed with greater longevity than the Chambertin. There is a crescendo of flavors here, remaining very focused, very intense with darker fruit fanning out on the finish that is akin to major chord thundering from a grand piano. This is an aristocratic, blue-blooded Clos de Bèze that deserves a decade in the cellar, within touching distance of the imperious 2015 Clos de Bèze.

Wine SpectatorThis is lush and harmonious, featuring kirsch, macerated cherry, blackberry, violet and spice flavors. A fruity style, with lively acidity and a heady finish. Impressive, yet approachable at this stage, with a solid grip of tannins emerging at the end. Best from 2021 through 2038. 67 cases imported.
