Faiveley Chambertin-Clos de Bèze 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"A highly spiced nose features notes of cool red currant, plum, violets and wet stone along with ample amounts of pungent Gevrey style earth. There is impressive richness and size to the powerful and well-concentrated large-scaled flavors that are underpinned by buried tannins before culminating in a huge finish that is also monumentally proportioned. This built-to-age beauty will also require a considerable amount of patience as it should see its 50th birthday without undue effort...94-97" BH 1/12 "Expressive aromas of coffee, licorice, sandalwood and black cherry lead off for this forceful yet sophisticated red. Its pedigree and huge energy, layered across the palate to the incredible finish, reveal its nascent yet great potential. Long, long finish. ..94-97" Non-Blind WS 5/12
