    (50% vendange entier ): Deep ruby-red. Pungent, soil-driven aromas of black fruits, crushed stone, tobacco and menthol. Tactile, penetrating and vibrant, with superb concentration and harmonious acidity to its black fruit, black licorice and salty mineral flavors. Most impressive today on the rising finish, which features substantial but noble tannins and great sappy persistence.

    The 2012 Mazoyeres-Chambertin Grand Cru comes from 50-year old vines and this vintage includes 50% whole cluster fruit. The stem addition lends the aromatics more complexity and nuance, fresh blackberry and boysenberry fruit complemented by hints of marmalade and quince. The palate is medium-bodied with silk smooth tannins that are a little fuller and more rounded than the other grand crus from this domaine. It lends this Mazoyeres fine weight and persistency, the finish neat and tidy with an undercurrent of mineralite and edginess. This is one of the best from Christophe Perrot-Minot this year.

  • 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.
