Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru 2013
Reduction masks the fruit and if for some crazy reason you're tempted to try a bottle of this young be sure to decant it first. Last year at this time the flavors seemed lighter than those of the regular cuvée but that is certainly not the case now as there is imposing size, weight and power to the dense, backward and tight flavors that are massively constituted, indeed so much so that the palate feel is more like that of a rock than a wine! This is a genuine bruiser of a wine and as such it won't be for everyone. However what is absolutely certain is that there's simply no point in opening a bottle of this before at least 15 years and it's going to last for 50.
