  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 89

    Marchand's 2008 Mazy-Chambertin - an addition to this portfolio this vintage - leads with rather volatile overtones of fruit distillates and resinous oakiness that are initially a bit off-putting. Lightly-cooked yet still tart red raspberry and rhubarb are allied with brown spices and resin on a juicy but prominently tannic palate. This finishes persistently, but is surprisingly disappointing overall in the present context. It certainly deserves re-tasting.

  • Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
