This may be the most complex of all the wines we tasted this evening as you expect from a Grand Cru. Scents of violet, lavender, lemon, mineral, cinnamon and ginger all made appearances at various times as I kept returning to the glass to find something new. Citrus, spice and mineral played on my tongue along with an intense acidity that needs time to mellow, yet the wine itself seemed very light on the palate. It will very definitely reward those patient enough to let it reach full maturity.

WS 90pts. - According to the Wine Spectator: A white with a sense of place. Acacia, lemon blossom, apple and mineral aromas and flavors abound, all matched to an elegant frame. This is balanced, lingering on the long, mineral-tinged aftertaste. Drink now through 2016. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 250 cases imported.

Relatively generous but not dominant wood intrudes upon the very ripe plum, cassis and floral aromas lead to extremely rich, opulent and palate drenching broad-scaled flavors that possess more dry extract than any wine to this point and possibly in t...

This is a classic example of Corton-Charlemagne with its impressively layered floral, green fruit, lime and stone-infused nose that precedes citrusy, precise and powerful mineral-driven flavors that posses real muscle on the almost painfully intense and steely finish that delivers striking length. While it's not quite as great as the Montrachet, it easily holds its own. A wine to own but note that only the patient will ever see it at its best as this is likely to evolve glacially. Burghound.com , Issue 39 3rd Quarter 2010, Allen Meadows

As it usually does, this offers another level of aromatic complexity with a highly spiced nose trimmed in a subtle touch of wood that does not interfere with the overall transparency of either the nose or the palate as this is pure, classy and refined. Moreover, the tannins are also more refined, which is unusual, and this completely stains the palate on the hugely long finish. A balanced, stylish and beguiling Bèze that is built to age, and improve, for up to two decades. Burghound.com, Issue Apr 1, 2009, Allen Meadows

Winemaker's Notes:

A discreet touch of oak highlights the naturally spicy floral and high-toned orchard and green fruit aromas before giving way to textured, sappy and almost painfully intense full-bodied flavors brimming with both dry extract and ample minerality on the hugely long and impeccably balanced finish. This is a really lovely wine that possesses everything it needs to deliver a first-rate drinking experience with a decade of cellar time. As good as this is, and it is very impressive, it's not necessarily superior to the magnificent Perrières though it may require a bit more bottle age to arrive at its peak.Allen Meadows' Burghound94 points
