Drouhin-Laroze Chambertin Clos de Beze 2004

Drouhin-laroze chambertin clos de beze 2004Opened this bottle deliberately on a flower day, with a huge trepidation in my heart that the vintage’s flaws (and also possibly provenance) will be too pronounced to make this anywhere near drinkable. You can imagine how relieved I was when the wine was bursting with plenty of ripe red cherries, some nuances of spice, and young fragrant tea leaves in the glass. Good texture and structure introduced by some chewy tannins with just a subtle touch of bitterness in the finish. The only drawback of this wine – it glided down me throat too easily and I wanted more! The food pairing – chinese roast chicken.
