Lot #104. Gérard Raphet Chambertin-Clos de Bèze 2008

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 92 WA.
"The Raphet 2008 Chambertin Clos de Beze smells alluringly of ripe dark cherry, licorice, ginger, blond tobacco, and hyacinth. Supple and tender, loaded with lightly-cooked cherry yet preserving a vintage-typical fruit skin edge and counterpoint of cherry pit piquancy, this exhibits a pure, penetrating persistence free of superficial sweetness that signals one's being in the presence of ancient vines in a great site. This rendition hasn't the depth of the very best wines that have come from this small parcel over the years, but it will remain memorably delicious . . ." Wine Advocate #189, Jun 2010
Provenance: The Bouleau Cellar
Notes: 1 Nicked vintage neck tag.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $325
