VM94+: Full ruby-red. Extraordinarily perfumed, profound nose combines tangy black raspberry, rose petal, coffee and game; essence of Cote de Nuits pinot noir. Lush, sweet and seamless; wonderfully silky and aromatic in the mouth. Truly palate-staining wine, with compelling sweetness and smooth, thoroughly buffered tannins.
WA92-95: The medium to dark ruby-colored 1999 Chambertin Clos de Beze has a beguiling perfume of red cherry and violet. It is medium to full-bodied, elegant, and unctuously textured. This juicy, sweet red cherry, currant, and raspberry-flavored wine has impeccably ripened tannins detectable in its exceptionally long and delineated finish
