Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 91.8 pts. and median of 91 pts. in 4 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 2/15/2014 & rated 91 points: Another Saturday at Knightsbridge - mostly blind (Northbrook, IL): Tasted double blind. Mostly black fruit aromas, meaty, dense on plate with good minerality and textures, modest spice. Still very firm, this needs more cellar time. (1328 views)
 Tasted by Sycamore on 11/22/2012 & rated 91 points: Give this a little air and it will yummify. Slight bricking. Opens up big time with open air (no decant). Fruits go slightly to the black side of the ledger. Great earthy aromatics. Now+5 years. (1507 views)
 Tasted by dzop on 9/11/2012 & rated 92 points: Unmistakeably GC from the first sip. Sappy without any sweetness, this shows a nice balance between mixed red and black fruit and tertiary development, with plenty of gamey beef-jus, a faint hint of mushroom and just a general Gevrey rusticity to it that is very nice. A hint of low-char oak, but nothing obtrusive. Excellent concentration for a medium bodied wine. I understand Gelin is considered to be one of the weakest producers of Beze, which surprises me - this is better than many a GC bottle I've had from second-tier GC's in the hands of well-regarded producers. I guess the terroir shows through. (2056 views)
 Tasted by gsquireh on 11/18/2011 & rated 93 points: stillabit close fisted in wanting to give you the pleasure that it can and will give. Very complex with its almost sappy port like nose, black and dark red fruits merge with spice and dried herbs yielding to the purest of balance finishes. Masculine and elegant this is perfect for a Clos de Beze. Should drink well for 8 to 10 more years. (2256 views)

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligot are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.

# 2013 Vintage Notes:
* "2013 is a vintage that 20 years ago would have been a disaster." - Will Lyons
* "low yields and highly variable reds, much better whites." - Bill Nanson
* "Virtually all wines were chaptalised, with a bit of sugar added before fermentation to increase the final alcohol level." - Jancis Robinson

# 2014 Vintage Notes:
"We have not had such splendid harvest weather for many years. This will ensure high quality (fragrant, classy and succulent are words already being used) across the board, up and down the hierarchy and well as consistently from south to north geographically apart from those vineyards ravaged by the hail at the end of June." - Clive Coates
