Wine Advocate | Rating: 94The 2015 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru reveals an attractive bouquet of red and black cherries, rose petal, wild berries and cassis, with comparatively little evidence of its time in new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, rich and ample, with a lavish attack, supple tannins, juicy acids and excellent sap on the finish. My only reservation is that this seems to be surprisingly giving and structurally open-knit for a young Mazis-Chambertin, but in this vintage of wines for the long haul, that may be no bad thing.Author: William Kelley
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.
