2019 Charles Van Canneyt Chambertin Clos des Beze Grand Cru
Charles Van Canneyt is the current winemaker at the iconic Domaine Hudelot-Noellat in Vougeot, but he also produces wine under his own label. Using his extensive contacts with the finest growers in Burgundy, Charles sources grapes from some of the top plots in the area, and makes the wines at a separate facility in Beaune. Charles is aiming for a similar purity and terroir focus as those wines of Hudelot-Noellat, and as such has minimal use of new oak each year.
Together Chambertin and Chambertin Clos des Beze form the heart of the Gevrey Chambertin village. While differences between the two can vary more with producer input than purely from vineyard geography, generally Chambertin is considered as producing more robust wines that require longer to show its hand, while Clos des Beze is often more giving and pretty in its youth.
