RATINGS

91-94Stephen Tanzer

Wild, tangy aromas of black raspberry, red licorice, game and stony minerality. Offers an almost liqueur-like ripeness, with a suave texture and wonderfully complex inner-mouth aromas of raspberry, game and tobacco. Very rich... Boasts superb... Finishes with very smooth tannins and compelling persistence.

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

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.
