It’s medium-to full-bodied with really fine tannins that are nicely wrapped in ripe fruit. There’s a savory, lightly meaty highlight to the flavors. It’s long and complex in the finish. Really balanced and attractive now, but will deliver even more in the future. Better after 2023.

The lilting and refined middle weight flavors possess evident minerality on the much more complex, longer and firmer finish. This is a beautifully elegant wine and while I often slightly prefer the Griotte chez Drouhin, in 2018 it appears that the Bèze is the more interesting of the two, at least at this early stage.
