More reserved on the nose than the Beze with terrific sappy verve to its aromas of dark fruits violet crushed stone iron and camphor. Juicy tightly wound and very intense on first pour but opened spectacularly in the glass to show outstanding creamy depth without any loss of energy. Today the wine's saline earth tones and minerality have the upper hand over its fruit. There's less easy sweetness here than the Clos de Beze is displaying but the slow ripening of the vintage is apparent and the finishing flavors go on and on. It would be a rare (and expensive) treat to try these two wines side by side in 2020 or so. 94(+?) points

By contrast to the Clos St. Jacques and the Bèze the Cham has already eaten its wood which allows free rein for the spicy pure elegant and restrained earthy red pinot fruit with animale hints and ample mineral notes to dissolve seamlessly into dusty textured precise and palate staining big-bodied flavors that are exceptionally tight on the linear but hugely long finish. At present the Bèze appears to have slightly better underlying material but we'll see in time as both are sensational plus the Cham has a long demonstrated ability to add weight in bottle.
