GRAND CRU CLASSÉ PERROT-MINOT’S 2005 CHAMBERTIN CLOS DE BEZE VIEILLES VIGNES (FROM 50-YEAR-OLD VINES) LEADS WITH A JAW-DROPPING NOSE OF CASSIS, LICORICE, CITRUS ZEST, BLACK RASPBERRY LIQUEUR, WOOD SMOKE, AND CANDIED VIOLETS. IN THE MOUTH, THIS PRESENTS A SMELTED ALLIANCE OF LIQUEUR-LIKE BLACK FRUIT ESSENCE, SALINE MINERALITY, AND DEEP, ROASTED MEATINESS.
