The Grand Cru vineyard of Chambertin-Clos de Bèze is found in the northern part of the Côte de Nuits. It occupies a choice location with its exposure to the east and its mild incline.

The wines offer a good breadth. The tannic structure is not too present. In Côte de Nuits they display nice intensity and maturity. Their evolution is slower than in Côte de Beaune.

94 pts The Wine Advocate

Tasted blind at the annual 'Burgfest' tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru from Joseph Drouhin was another Clos-de-Bèze (alongside that of Chanson's) that completely surpassed its showing out of barrel. It has a clean and refined bouquet with cola-tinged red berry fruit (cranberry leaf and raspberry) with touches of rooibos and bergamot emerging just behind. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannin, impressive depth but with some new oak that clearly needs to be assimilated. Everything is being held back at the moment, but the class and stature here.
