96Wine Spectator

This is full of ripe black cherry, black currant, licorice, sandalwood, game and flinty mineral aromas and flavors. Juicy and harmonious, with a dense matrix of tannins and lively acidity for support. Terrific length.

Here too the underlying earth, spice and dark berry fruit aromas have to fight through a pungent mask of menthol and wood toast. On the plus side there is outstanding intensity and power to the full-bodied, robust and muscular flavors that offer more minerality if slightly less mid-palate density though notably better depth on the markedly firm finish.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey Chambertin, Mazis-Chambertin

Mazis-Chambertin is a 22.4 acre Grand Cru vineyard near the village of Gevrey-Chambertin. The name Mazis is sometimes spelled with a “y” or without the final “s.” The soil is shallow and somewhat rocky, and the wine made from this vineyard is considered excellent. The legendary Lalou Bize of Maison Leroy is one of the smaller landholders with about .6 of an acre. There are some 30 proprietors with parcels in Mazis-Chambertin. The largest are Hospices de Beaune, with 4.38 acres; Bernard Dugat-Py, with 3.05 acres; and Joseph Faiveley, with 3 acres.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
