The Mazy-Chambertin is a wine known to have a firm structure and considerable power. Elegant red berry and cherry fruit aromas and flavors, with excellent structure and balanced acidity. Hints of spice, forest floor, and elegant fruit. It is a virile wine, well built with a nice aromatic power and elegance.
The most 'reliable' of the domaine's grands crus, according to Cyrielle Rousseau, this comes from a 55-year-old parcel and produces small berries (millerands) in the vineyard. It's always a highly perfumed wine, enhanced by a slight volatile lift in 2017, with scented oak, good focus, fine tannins and succulent wild strawberry fruit.
Deft but not invisible wood easily allows the attractively spicy aromas of wild dark berries, plum, humus and a floral nuance to be appreciated. The succulent but powerful big-bodied flavors possess slightly better mid-palate density while exhibiting excellent power and minerality on the robust, saline and very firm finale. This too has been making real quality strides over the past few years.
Wilder and more brooding, the 2017 Mazy-Chambertin Grand Cru offers up notes of wild berries, dark chocolate, peonies and rich forest floor. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and supple with fine-grained, chalky tannins and persuasive energy and length.
