Wine Critic Reviews:

A lean, sinewy style, boasting cherry, currant, spice and leafy flavors. This is coiled like a steel wire, with well-integrated tannins and spice notes dominating the finish. Best from 2022 through 2038. 10 cases imported.

Wine Spectator | 93 WS
Bright medium red. Strong oak tones partly mask aromas of red berries, rose petal and medicinal menthol. At once dense and taut, with savory, firm-edged flavors of cranberry, minerals and white pepper giving the middle palate an incisive character. Not a fleshy wine--in fact a bit youthfully compressed today--but finishes perfumed, focused and long, with pepper and saline mineral notes displaying a slightly tart edge.

(Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru Red) Moderate wood frames exuberantly spicy and fresh red and dark berry fruit that carries ample Gevrey-style earth and underbrush influences. There is good size, weight and volume to the admirably intense broad-shouldered flavors that evidence a light minerality on the impressively long but not really austere finish. This is a big but harmonious effort that should age gracefully for years to come though note that it will likely need at least 10. (Drink starting 2029).

Burghound | 91-93 BH
The 2014 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru includes 45% whole bunch fruit and was matured in 60% new oak. The nose is generous and perfumed with macerated black cherries, wild strawberry and light iodine notes, the new oak nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp, orange zest-tinged entry. The tannins are quite firm and lend a rigid framework to this wine, this blend from a new oak barrel suggesting that 60% will be the right amount and allow the fruit to come through. Still, I would like a little more breeding here...more aristocracy...this is Clos de Bèze after all!

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer D.Laroze: Take a moment to remember those times where your emotions were stirred awake in a single fleeting moment - if you focus hard enough, the experience will start to resemble that of drinking Domaine Drouhin-Laroze's finest wines. The estate has survived through thick and thin and emerged seemingly unscathed, ready to take the world by storm again through the power and precision of their delicious wines.The fruits come with a familiar yet stunning intensity that could split arrows. Red fruits are typically slightly more prominent than their black counterparts. Whether you're dealing with orange zest or more exotic secondary aromas, the experience is otherworldly. The purity of the fruit flavors cannot be understated, as it allows the almost crunchy texture to shine even brighter. It's incredibly hard to stop at just one glass, but why would you want to?

Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy.

OWC No
Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
