"Perfect harmony"
2005 Drouhin Chambertin Clos de Beze

Posted by Ian McFadden

At this point, I rarely get my hands on Grand Cru reds from the 2005 vintage.

Simply put, the red Burgundies of 2005 are extraordinary.

It's a vintage of nearly unheard-of structure and terroir imprint. It's a very special vintage and one that seems destined to be included with the greats of the past fifty years.

I'm very excited to offer Drouhin's 2005 Chambertin Clos de Beze for $579.95. 

Even in the context of the lauded vintage, Drouhin produced jaw-dropping 2005s. As Burghound's quote above makes clear, the 2005 Beze is a masterpiece. 

Clos de Beze produces some of the most epic examples of Grand Cru Burgundy. It is a powerful and soaring expression of Gevrey with beautifully complex notes of bright and dark red fruits, earth, and a subtle undercurrent of minerality.

With their light touch, Drouhin makes an intricate and brilliantly clear Beze. There's a diamond cut precision to the wine that marries beautifully to Beze's inherent muscle. The 2005 is stunning. It has a beautifully woven tapestry of fruit, earth, spice, and floral high notes. 

I'll warp this up. As you can imagine, quantities are extremely limited. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best. 

To order, email offers@crushwineco.com or call the store at (212) 980-9463.

Burghound: "A ripe, spicy and expressive multi-layered nose of red and black pinot fruit, earth, game, smoke and hints of anise, clove and exotic Oriental tea gives way to rich, cool, suave and very pure flavors that are lovely, refined and classy. This is understated in the mouth and possesses an ultra sophisticated mouth feel on the superbly long, focused and driving finish. This is not a huge wine by the standards of a classic Bèze but everything is in perfect harmony."
