2018 Olivier Bernstein Chambertin Clos De Beze Grand Cru, Cote de Nuits, Burgundy, France (750 ml)
Summer only began toward mid-July, but the abundant sunshine combined with cool nights permitted Bernstein to slowly obtain, without intense heat, a beautiful phenolic maturity while preserving the acidity. This is everything a Pinot Noir loves about Burgundy.
The 2018 Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru is a Burgundy of tremendous substance, power and resonance. Whereas the Chambertin is a bit compact, the Bèze explodes out of the glass, showing tremendous vertical intensity and energy to burn. Inky blue/purplish fruit, lavender, menthol, licorice and sage give the Bèze a good deal of aromatic intensity. Patience will be rewarded.
