Took a 1971 Bouchard Père et Fils Chambertin-Clos de Bèze, Grand Cru to lunch yesterday that drank wonderfully well. It had a hint of truffle and forest floor development. There was intense black cherry and raspberry fruit at its core. There was a cool stoniness to the wine and the finish had plenty of ironstone and really fanned out. Despite how good the wine was, it simply didn’t look like a Clos de Bèze. I had a closer look at the cork this morning and noticed it was in fact a Nuits St.Georges. The Durand prongs had obscured the vineyard name on the cork, so I can’t tell you exactly what it was. No Bèze but a bloody good wine.
I have had upgrades in the past, but never a downgrade to that extent!
so not the Beze wine you’ve ever had but still sounds good.
