The 2018 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru has a delightful, well-defined bouquet with pure dark berry fruit, just a touch of reduction, yet you can tell the caliber behind it. The palate is medium-bodied with a harmonious, creamy-textured opening, well judged acidity, very good Clos-de-Bèze spine with a sapid finish. Superb. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2018 red tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2055

More reserved than the Charmes and Latricieres, the 2018 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru opens in the glass with a brooding bouquet of cassis, wild berries, smoked meats, rich soil tones, licorice and caramelized orange. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, deep and introverted, with an ample endowment of fine, powdery tannins and lively underpinning acids. I’m looking forward to revisiting this from bottle.
