The vineyards of Mazis Chambertin sit between Clos de Bèze Grand Cru and the village of Gevrey Chambertin. Its deep brown soil is known for making wines with a superb ability to age. Dense dark purple colour. This has a deep, brooding, wild forest fruit character. There is incredible volume and, whilst concentrated, it is beautifully balanced. With mouth-filling fruit and flavours, soft ripe tannins and a juicy succulent finish this is a delicious wine.
Neal Martin, January 2019,
The 2017 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru has a rather backward and introverted bouquet offering boysenberry fruit and a touch of India ink. The palate is balanced with fine tannin and well-judged acidity. It just misses a degree of complexity and mineralité, making the finish pleasant but not memorable or profound. 2021 - 2034

Lightish crimson. Sweet with red fruit and a hint of vanilla sweetness, the sweetness balanced by a more savoury spice. A little more obviously oaky on the palate at this stage but there's a fine floral note too and refined tannin structure. More savoury finish. Already complex. Drink 2023-2035
This is a substantial Gevrey Chambertin domaine with 12 hectares that include some of the finest premiers and grands crus in the village. Previously Chantal Tortochot’s father Gabriel sold most of his fruit to the famous Beaune négociant, Joseph Drouhin. Since taking over in 2001 Chantal has been carefully and surely building the domaine’s name and reputation around the world. In 2013 the estate became organically certified. Chantal favours early bottling to capture the fruit purity.
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.
