Aromatically this is compositionally similar to the regular cuvée except that the fruit is slightly denser and there is notably better complexity. There is also more concentration to the gorgeously textured and highly extract-rich big-bodied flavors that also exude plenty of minerality on the caressing yet powerful finish that is initially linear yet as it sits on the palate really fans out. This superb wine does a slow build from the mid-palate on back to the massively deep finale. This possesses simply fantastic potential and should be alive and well 50 years from now if anyone has that much patience! (97) 'Don't Miss' BURGHOUND

Wonderfully scented, almost Musigny-like aromas of black cherry, licorice, violet and minerals. Boasts outstanding sappy energy and definition, with the dark berry flavors energized by piquant minerality and salty traces. These vines are actually on the Chambertin side of Clos de Bèze but the wine is less powerful than the estate's other Clos de Bèze, notes Hervet. The endless perfumed finish excites the taste buds. Just five barrels made. (98) STEPHEN TANZER
