This is quite ripe yet the impression is one of freshness with no surmaturité while the aromas reveal an exuberant spiciness to the dense mix of red and black fruit and wet stone aromas. The supple round and marvelously well-detailed broad-shouldered flavors possess a silky mid-palate brimming with dry extract on the almost painfully intense and massively long mineral-driven finish that displays stunning persistence. The 2009 is an impeccably well-balanced effort in yet another in a long line of great vintages for this storied wine.

Darker and more restrained on the nose than the Clos Saint-Jacques offering sour cherry menthol licorice and a peppery nuance. Rich thick and powerful but youthfully brooding with dark fruit licorice and mineral flavors showing superb definition. Wonderfully deep sappy soil-inflected wine with a firm tannic spine and an expanding energetic finish. Today I find this harder to taste than the Chambertin which is frequently the wine that's cooler and more aristocratic in the early going.

The 2009 Chambertin-Clos de Beze is a decidedly virile imposing wine built on a core of seriously ripe fruit that is backed up by plenty of tannic heft. Despite its intense personality the Beze also shows plenty of sensuality freshness and vibrancy all qualities that make this a wonderfully complete and intriguing Burgundy. Anticipated maturity: 2024-2049.
