RATINGS

An almost exuberantly fruited mix of primary and secondary notes that carry ample earth and a subtle sauvage note blends into admirably rich and moderately flavors that are still quite fresh.

17.5Clive Coates

...still very vigorous. Fullish, plump, lush. This is very good indeed but it doesn't quite have the class and concentration of great. Very pure blackberry/ currant fruit. Good acidity. Just a little tannin. Long, rich finish. Fine. 17.5

REGION

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.

TYPE

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.
