Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru 2012


Lobenberg: Rauch und intensive, fast zu Tränen rührende Frucht, spielen mit hoher Intensität in der aromatischen Duftwolke. So fein und voller Finesse was die primär dunkelroten und schwarzen Kirschen da veranstalten. Dann kommt Holunder, Johannisbrotbaum, dunkle Erde und Schokolade. Tiefe dichte Nase, Zwetschge, Schwarzkirsche, schwarze Johannisbeere, und wie schon beim Gevrey Clos St. Jacques feine kubanische, saftig weiche Tabake, Brombeere, etwas Teer und Goudron. Immense Tiefe und aristokratische Würde ausstrahlend, tolle Struktur. Insgesamt grandiose Dichte und Länge im Geruch, aber eher komplex als wuchtig. Im Mund ein Aromenfeuerwerk, eine Variation aller denkbaren Kirschausprägungen mit langem, kalkig salzigen Nachbrenner, fast Schärfe zeigend in der grandiosen Harmonie. Wunderbare Säure von Zitrusfrüchten, Grapefruit und Zitronengras, die salzige Mineralität dominiert aber sogar diese grandiose Rasse. Der große Wein braucht Zeit. 97-99/100


TA über: Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru

-- TA: The oak can be quite assertive at this domaine, but the Grands Crus bottlings have digested it with ease in 2012, such is their fruit concentration. This has appealing notes of clove spice, polished tannins and sumptuous berry fruit, all sustained by an undercurrent of acidity. Not cheap, but very classy indeed. 96/100


Parker über: Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru

-- Parker: -- ParkerThe 2012 Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru has a tight but focused bouquet with mineral-rich red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit, citrus peel and almost a touch of flint. The palate is silky smooth on the entry with very fine tannins. It is reticent at first but it unfurls wondrously in the month with effervescent red fruit infused with orange zest and fabulous nervosite that keep the mouth tingling long after the wine has bid adieu. This is one of the finest Clos de Beze that I have encountered from the domaine. Bon vin! 95-97/100


Galloni über: Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru

-- Galloni: A huge, vertical wine, Bruno Clair's 2012 Chambertin Clos de Béze is endowed with serious structure. Layers of dark, expressive fruit are supported by beams of minerality and acidity. This is an especially sleek, gracious Béze, but there is plenty of power lurking in the background. Layers of voluptuous fruit nearly cover the tannins in a majestic Béze that should drink well for many years. 94-96/100

BH über: Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru

-- BH: A discreet hint of wood allows the slightly riper and definitely spicier aromas of earth, humus, dark berries and soft sauvage notes to shine. There is excellent power to the muscular and broad-shouldered flavors that also brim with structure-buffering dry extract that coats the palate on the mineral-driven, punchy and seriously persistent finish. This is a Bèze of power and finesse though note that unlike many 2012s this is clearly built for the long haul. 93-95/100

IWC über: Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru

-- IWC: Good bright red. Lovely perfume of crushed blackberry and violet. At once densely packed and light on its feet, with superb definition and lift to its flavors of sweet raspberry, boysenberry, blackberry and spices. Finishes very long and subtly perfumed, with substantial but lush and noble tannins. This is remarkably accessible today but there's plenty of medicinal reserve here to ensure a graceful evolution in bottle. 93-96/100
