Name: Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze AOP
Cuvée: Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze
Classification: Grand Cru
1x bottle 75cl
The qualitative range is very wide, with more or less structure. We find beautiful ruby colors so characteristic of pinot noir. The bouquets are expressive, clean, pure, in the register of small red fruits and already more secondary notes. The 2006 vintage produced rather elegant and racy wines in the Côte de Beaune, whereas for the Côte de Nuits the style is more fleshy and structured. Pleasure wines that express all the qualities of pinot noir and Burgundy terroirs, they can be drunk.
Consumption: 10 to 40 years.
Grape variety :
The site: the vineyard of Chambertin-Clos de Bèze is located in the north of the Côte de Nuits. It occupies a choice site with its exposure to the east and its moderate slope.
History & tradition: the monks of Bèze became owners of land in Gevrey in 630. They then founded this walled enclosure which they surrounded with walls. The area will never change... Only the walls have disappeared!
The ground: clay-limestone, a mixture of pebbles, scree and reddish and grained clays.
Surface of the Domaine : 0,13 ha.
Organic cultivation since 1990, then biodynamic a few years later.
Plants: resulting from our massal selection, raised in our own nursery, but also from recognized qualitative clones.
Soil maintenance: the soil is fed with compost of manure and white wood, sometimes with Guanos. They are ploughed either mechanically or by horses to contain the herbs.
Treatments : Products only authorized in organic farming: infusions and decoctions of plants, sulfur and copper, rock powders. We preserve natural predators.
Planting density: from 10 000 to 12500 plants/ha to explore in depth the intimacy of our terroirs and reduce the production per vine.
Returns: We are targeting the old base return, which is the current allowable return minus 20%.
Harvest: manual in small pierced crates to preserve the integrity of the fruit.
Sorting: in the vineyard and in the winery if necessary.
- 2 to 3 weeks of maceration and vinification in total.
- Native yeasts.

Joseph Drouhin seeks total control of the extraction process, which gives color and substance but should not be done at the expense of finesse and typicity.
Type: in barrels, 20% of which are new.
Duration: 14-18 months.
Origin of wood: French high forests.
Drying of the wood: the House insists on totally controlling the drying of its wood for more than 3 years, which contributes to the elegance of the wines.
Throughout the process, decisions are essentially made on the basis of tastings, piece by piece. These data are naturally supplemented by technical analyses. As for all the wines of the House, absolute priority is given to the expression of the terroir and the respect of the vintage effect.
