Tasting Notes

Burghound - Don't miss! The Le Moine 2005 Chambertin Clos de Beze erupts from the glass with scents of black cherries, black tea, rose petals, brown spices and roasted meats. Yet more polished and refined than even its most remarkable predecessors, this fans flavor to all four corners of the palate while suggesting a lift and elegance and offering an invigorating, tart, primary fruit juiciness that defy its sheer density. Spectacularly persistent and possessed of positively bloody meatiness and ineffable but unmistakable nuances for which “mineral” represents merely a conceptual groping, this combines the intensity of the Le Moine Mazis with the elegance and seduction of the Charmes.
