Benchmarks

Posted in Uncategorized on 1 May 2019 by stephen wayne

Often overlooked here at Renegade until now. These are some of the best gems of Burgundy.

From left to right (thank you Allen Meadows for the detailed tasting notes):

2015 Chambertin-Clos de Bèze ($565) is cool, elegant, spicy and even more complex with its range of airy red berries, underbrush, earth, sandalwood and anise nuances. There is excellent richness, power and mid-palate density to the big-bodied but not massive flavors that exhibit a subtle minerality on the mouth coating and hugely long finish. This is certainly an imposing wine yet the mouthfeel is one of class and grace and interestingly for such a young Bèze, there is virtually no austerity. Wow.

The other two are Chardonnays. The middle bottle is a truly romantic expression of the varietal in Morey-Saint-Denis from the vineyard ‘En la rue de Vergy” ($125) and the far right bottle is a gorgeous Chardonnay from Marsanny ($52), perhaps the benchmark of the appellation.

We are open until 6pm the rest of the week.
