About Faiveley 2018 Chambertin Clos de Beze, Grand Cru

2021 is a rare vintage. The bud burst took place ten days earlier than anticipated on the 4 April. Then, during the nights of the 5, 6 and 7 April, temperatures fell well below as low as -8 °C. From May through until July the weather was cool and humid. Flowering took place mid-June. The harvests began on the 21 September and drew to a close on the 30 September. Our red wines are seductive, intensely fragrant and spicy(notes of white pepper and cinnamon). 2021 offers a classic Burgundian style with delicate tannins, excellent aromatic intensity and notes of juicy, zesty red berries and remarkable balance. This is an elegant and immensely pleasurable vintage.

The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand. The proportion of de-stemmed grapes and whole clusters varies depending on the vintage. The wines are punched down daily in order to extract colour, tannins and aromas from the skin of the grapes. After a 19 day vatting period, the alcoholic fermentation is complete. The free-run wine is run off using a gravity system whilst the marc is pressed slowly and gently in order to extract an exceptionally pure press wine. The wines are aged for 16-18 months in French oak barrels (60% new oak and 40% one-wine barrels) which have been selected for their fine grain and moderate toast. The wines are left to age in our cellars at consistent, natural hygrometry and temperature.

Deep ruby red hue with purplish glimmers. The complex nose offers a combination of fruit, spice and floral notes. The lively palate displays exceptional tension, elegant tannins, a hint of white pepper and menthol notes. Les Ouvrées Rodin is an intense, deep, smooth, elegant and subtle wine and a perfect reflection the character of its historical terroir.

Wine Spectator scored this 96 Points saying, "The 2018 Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru soars from the glass with a rich bouquet of cassis, dark berries, baking chocolate, woodsmoke, loamy soil, licorice and grilled game. On the palate, it's full-bodied, rich and concentrated, with terrific energy and structural refinement despite the wine's texture and volume and a long, saline finish."
