Our Chambertin Clos de Bèze
The Grands Crus are matured in oak barrels (80% new barrels) made from wood from the Allier and Nivernais region. We favour light to medium-plus toasts as this ensures the perfect harmony between the wine and wood tannins.
The Chambertin Clos De Bèze has an intense purple colour with a fragrance of small red fruits and liquorice on the nose providing strong aromatic majestic quality. On the palate the attack is balanced, clear, sound and rich. Its melted, spicy and precise tannins offer roundness and lightness on the finish. With a hint of rose, this elegant wine suggests its sensuality. A wine to be laid down.
Serving temperature : 16° to 18°C
