Burghound, April 2015,
Like the Lavaut, the more restrained nose possesses plenty of sauvage character that adds breadth to the complex array of red currant, plum, earth, underbrush and humus-suffused aromas. There is excellent volume and an intense minerality present on the broad-shouldered and extract-rich flavors that display a dusty mouth feel on the impressively long and deep finish. This should reward both longer-term cellaring but it is less backward and austere than usual and thus should be approachable after only 5 to 7 years of bottle age. Sweet spot Drink 2024 +
Domaine Frédéric et André Esmonin
Mazis-Chambertin is one of the nine Grands Crus in the Gevrey-Chambertin district on the Côte de Nuits, producing red wine from Pinot Noir. It is located on a gentle slope in the north of the Grand Cru area of Gevrey-Chambertin. The vineyard lies on a limestone subsoil, topped with brown, chalky soil. It is sheltered from the winds and hail by the woods of the Montagne de la Combe Grisard to the North West. When young these wines are bursting with strawberry and raspberry flavours, as well as violets and gamey undertones. Mazis-Chambertin is very aromatic, dark in colour and long lasting.
