Faiveley Chambertin-Clos de Bèze 1996

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Once the sulfur blows off this is a lovely wine to smell rich with iron, flowers, and wild berry notes that turn towards lingonberry. Complicating scents of smoke, spice and earth fill out the subtle, layered nose and are quite seductive. In the mouth the wine remians quite tight with a very focused, slightly hard core of minerality and drying tannins keeping much under wraps. The finish is very iron rich but stuccato and short with faint echoes of fruit and spice. leave this alone for 5-6 years
