"DON'T MISS. A discreet hint of wood allows the slightly riper and definitely spicier aromas of earth, humus, dark berries and soft sauvage notes to shine. There is excellent power to the muscular and broad-shouldered flavors that also brim with structure-buffering dry extract that coats the palate on the mineral-driven, punchy and seriously persistent finish. This is a Bèze of power and finesse though note that unlike many 2012s this is clearly built for the long haul."
Antonio Galloni - Vinous:
"The 2012 Chambertin Clos de Béze is going to need time to fully come together. The combination of huge fruit and prominent acidity is utterly captivating, even if the 2012 is only showing a hint of its ultimate potential. A layered, resonant finish laced with new leather, spice, mint, rose petal and violet overtones leaves a lasting impression."
