WS 93
Wine Spectator, June 2009
A blast of cherry, raspberry, mint and mineral aromas and flavors herald this focused, tensile red, which has ripe, sweet fruit, a firm structure, refinement and fine length. The finish is all spice now. Best from 2012... A blast of cherry, raspberry, mint and mineral aromas and flavors herald this focused, tensile red, which has ripe, sweet fruit, a firm structure, refinement and fine length. The finish is all spice now. Best from 2012 through 2025.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, December 2009
A terrifically meaty, smoky intensity characterizes Raphet's 2006 Chambertin Clos de Beze whose ripe black fruits and licorice further saturate the palate, accompanied by abundant though relatively fine-grained tannins... A terrifically meaty, smoky intensity characterizes Raphet's 2006 Chambertin Clos de Beze whose ripe black fruits and licorice further saturate the palate, accompanied by abundant though relatively fine-grained tannins. No question this is a relatively austere, spare exemplar of its great site, but its combination of levity and transparency to stony, chalky, and savory meaty notes with sheer tenacity is remarkable. I would give it 3-4 years before planning to follow it actively for the subsequent 6-8. But rich sensuality is never going to be its theme. In fact, this is almost a Zen-like Clos de Beze. - David Schildknecht

Burghound, January 2009
A very spicy red berry fruit nose that is a mix of upper and lower register aromas and here the aromatic depth is the best in the range and is followed by rich, full and notably sweet flavors that are delicious and punchy... A very spicy red berry fruit nose that is a mix of upper and lower register aromas and here the aromatic depth is the best in the range and is followed by rich, full and notably sweet flavors that are delicious and punchy if not especially powerful. A Clos de Bèze of finesse that has enough tannic backbone to develop for the better part of a decade.
