Tasting Notes

    Neal Martin, December 2013,
    Score: 92-94

    The 2012 Mazoyeres-Chambertin Grand Cru has a very pure bouquet with scents of black plum and freshly tilled soil and lavender: broody but complex. The palate has a structured entry that exerts a gentle grip, with lovely bay leaf and even clove notes complementing the dark berry fruit. Nice delineation on the foursquare finish – this is a captivating Mazoyeres.

    Antonio Galloni, January 2014,
    Score: 94-96

    Leroux's 2012 Mazoyères-Chambertin dazzles with its intense, perfume and rich, round personality. Dark raspberries, mocha, licorice, spices and rose petals all abound in the glass. A model of pure sensuality, the Mazoyères finishes with substantial depth and intensity. Today, the Mazoyères is firing on all cylinders. Drink 2024-2039

  • BURG

    Burghound, April 2014,
    Score: 90-93

    A pungently earthy and quite somber nose is very Gevrey with its sauvage, humus and underbrush-infused dark currant aromas. The mid-palate feel to the medium weight plus flavors is surprisingly accessible with a subtle minerality that appears on the mildly rustic and well-balanced finish that firms up quickly. This is not as dense as the best of these grands crus but I like both the depth and delivery. Drink 2023+

Region

Mazoyéres-Chambertin

Mazoyères-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 far south of Gevrey-Chambertin next to the Morey-St-Denis border. The vineyard lies on gravelly soil of no more than 30 to 40 cm in depth over the bare rock below. 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. Mazoyères-Chambertin is lighter and more rounded than other Grand Cru Gevreys. The appellations of Mazoyères-Chambertin and Charmes-Chambertin can be used interchangeably.
