Wine Advocate | Rating: 94The 2011 Chambertin Clos de Beze is typically elegant and almost understated on the nose, but it certainly has very fine delineation and elegance. The palate is nicely focused, very pure and linear. There is lovely symmetry here with a graceful finish worthy of the hallowed climat. Superb.Author: Neal Martin
Wine Spectator | Rating: 93Initially tight and unyielding, this blossoms with air into an elegant, graceful red, showing currant, cherry and spice flavors. Silky in texture and long, echoing fruit and spice on the aftertaste, which reveals a hint of mineral.Author: Bruce Sanderson
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94Medium red. Complex but youthfully reticent nose offers cherry, raspberry, minerals and sexy smoky oak. Juicy, silky and deep, with lovely flesh and restrained sweetness to the tangy redcurrant and spice flavors. Very well-judged use of new oak here. A building note of orange zest adds lift to the middle palate. Finishes silky, suave and long, with noble tannins. With 48 hours in the recorked bottle, this continued to show a wonderfully layered mouth feel while avoiding the peppery aspect displayed by many examples from this vintage. I'd love to try this next to the Chapelle in ten years.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2014

Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
