The Potel 2005 Chambertin Clos de Beze thus had a very hard act to follow but its rose petal licorice orange zest black raspberry and cassis perfume are captivating. Less lush and sumptuous than the Chambertin (and incidentally significantly lighter in color) this Clos de Beze makes its mark in refinement and dynamic with a dazzling interplay of floral spice mineral and fruit throughout and with any carnal elements entirely sublimated. The finish here floats with effortless allure across the palate and one's memory. The reputation of the appellation suggests long-keeping but it will be hard to keep one's hands from the corkscrew. While there are four barrels of Chambertin there is only one of Clos de Beze. -David Schildknecht

Not surprisingly given the very backward stage of the Chambertin this offers significantly more aromatic breadth with its spicy dark fruit and almost invisible wood that introduces big rich and serious flavors that are classy refined and pure with superb power and length. I very much like the sense of harmony and overall balance and this too will require at least a decade of cellar time and probably more.
