RATINGS

96Wine Spectator

Stunning aromas of violet, ripe fruit and a hint of game mark this seductive red. Both succulent and chewy, with dense tannins deftly woven into its fabric and a lovely sweet fruit and mineral finish.

18Jancis Robinson

Subtle. Lots of fruit. Grainy. Racy. Quite fine textured. Real delicacy. Yet powerful, too.

...concentrated and evidences a distinct animale character with supple but serious flavors imbued by ample earth and underbrush nuances... powerfully sappy and mouth coating finish that is long, classy and impressive.

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.
