Chambertin Clos de Beze Perrot-Minot 93 Premier 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2014 Chambertin Clos de Beze Vieilles Vignes has a very classy, sophisticated bouquet with vibrant red berry fruit infused with palpable mineral tones -- focused and complex. The palate has a sense of energy and animation on the entry with sorbet-fresh red fruit, orange zest and a touch of spice, the mouth tingling with the sensation; although, it segues into a more austere and structured finish, as if remembering its manners. This is an intriguing and cerebral Clos-de-Bèze...93-95" WA 12/15 "Healthy deep red. Musky redcurrant, rare beef, iron and earth aromas are complemented by a leathery nuance; a very complex expression of soil with a noble rusticity. Like liquid silk on the palate, this hugely rich and voluminous wine shows more primary fruit character in the mouth than on the nose, even if it's a bit lower-toned than the Chapelle. Thick, seamless wine with great finesse and length. Its serious but fully ripe tannins will require at least six or seven years of cellaring...93-95" Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media 01/16 "Once again the highly expressive nose can be aptly described as ultra-floral with a huge range of spice elements on the airy and cool aromas of red and dark berry liqueur scents. There is that beguiling sense of underlying tension to the firmly stony and beautifully well-detailed broad-shouldered flavors that deliver superb length on the seamlessly well-balanced finale. This will need to develop more depth to merit the top of the range but the underlying material is certainly present such that it could occur...92-95" BH 01/16

For very many years now, we have practised integrated viticulture, refusing to use any chemical fertiliser or herbicide. A style of viticulture adapted to the terroir, which enables us to obtain grapes at optimum maturity, and to arrive at the unique expression of each plot – of these very special places that our ancestors gradually discovered and that we do not wish to betray. We perpetuate this profound respect for nature, pay attention to the balance of our soils and thus prefer to stand back and listen to this terroir, only intervening when necessary or when the weather requires it, never systematically. These vines (some of them over a hundred years old) are frequently ploughed. They are also worked in such a way that they only produce six or seven bunches per plant (we carry out green harvesting in certain plots). Moreover, we thin out the leaves when necessary, and this also contributes to achieving a higher degree of maturity for the fruit. We believe that the concentration of a wine occurs naturally in the vineyard. It is true that all these viticultural practices mean that our yields are low, all the more so when you consider that the grapes harvested undergo extremely rigorous sorting. However, this approach paves the way for a vinification which consequently requires as little intervention as possible, since all the elements which make up a natural and original wine are already present in the fruit, which we leave to express itself fully.
