Faiveley Chambertin-Clos de Bèze 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Bright medium red. Initially reticent aromas of wild red berries and medicinal herbs are joined by a note of cherry liqueur as the wine opens in the glass. Silky, sweet and light on its feet; conveys explosive inner-mouth perfume, with a powerful crushed stone element contributing sappy energy. The longest and strongest on the back end of these 2008s to this point, with the berry and crushed stone flavors complicated by a savory character...93-96" IWC 03/10

Bright medium red. Medicinal black cherry, licorice and a stony element on the nose. Large-scaled, powerful and penetrating, with a sappy small-berry intensity and an exhilarating balance of sweetness and acidity. Finishes with crushed stone and saline nuances and outstanding lift. Wonderfully sappy Corton from what Hervet described as a normal yield of about 40 hectoliters per hectare. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Mar/Apr 10, Stephen Tanzer

Good full, medium red. Deep but somewhat reserved aromas of wild red berries, minerals, iodine and spicy oak, lifted by a floral topnote. Wonderfully concentrated, silky and sweet, with almost shocking early sex appeal. This really stains the palate on the back end, finishing with terrific energy, sweetness and lingering perfume. It's hard to imagine anyone not liking this style. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Mar/Apr 10, Stephen Tanzer

The longest and strongest on the back end of these 2008s to this point, with the berry and crushed stone flavors complicated by a savory character. I find this quite unforthcoming today, but this was nonetheless slated to be bottled in December. It will require a good decade of cellaring and should be very long-lived.
