Tasting Notes

  • BURG

    Burghound, April 2018,
    Score: 91-93

    A very toasty and menthol-infused nose offers up plenty of sauvage and earth elements on the mostly wild dark currant scents. The rich, round and velvet-textured flavors possess good mid-palate density though the finish is overtly woody. While this may eventually eat most of its wood, it's not completely clear that it will ever successfully integrate all of it. Drink 2028+

  • ST

    Stephen Tanzer, January 2018,
    Score: 91-93

    Good dark red. Nose dominated by animal reduction. Then wonderfully silky and fine-grained on the palate, albeit with slightly reduced flavors of black fruits and menthol. Not yet showing much finesse--in fact, the back end is a bit clenched--but the tannins are quite suave. In an awkward stage today but holds out serious potential.

Region

Mazis-Chambertin

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.
