    Description

    Chambertin 2016
    Clos de Beze, H. Boillot
    Bottle (6)


    "Bright dark, red. Medicinal dark fruit and licorice aromas are a bit muted today by a strong oak element. Densely packed and wonderfully tactile but also juicy and energetic, conveying a strong impression of thrust to its very intense black cherry and saline soil flavors. Very concentrated, voluminous wine with a powerful impression of terroir; altogether fatter than the Boillot's '16 from the Côte de Beaune. Really spreads out to saturate the palate and linger on the dense, spicy aftertaste. One feels the thick skins in the wine's very natural tannins." (93-95 pts. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, Nov. 2017)

    "Slightly more evident wood influence frames the overtly spicy and quite floral aromas of both red and dark currant, humus and earth. The seductively textured, concentrated, focused and relatively powerful broad-shouldered flavors that also brim with dry extract, all wrapped in a highly energetic, even refreshing finish that is very, very firmly structured while maintaining first-rate balance. This too is excellent but given that the tannins are so firm, this is a 'buy and forget you own it' wine." (95 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #70, Apr. 2018)
