International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93Deep red with ruby tones. Complex aromas of cherry, crushed stone, licorice and musky coffee, with hints of caramel and molasses. Concentrated, juicy and energetic, with lovely thickness and inner-mouth perfume to its flavors of black fruits and licorice. Finishes firm, long and aromatic. This may ultimately top the 2012 version, but I prefer the Mazy 2012 to the '11 in the early going.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2014
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, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
