Tasting Notes

From a tiny plot of vines planted in 1919 located next to Bernard Dugat's, this is a monumental wine. A deep broody nose of black cherries, a touch of wet sand and bitter chocolate. Full-bodied palate that is so, so pure with fantastic delineation and verve. Stunning balance and focus, this wine just dances across the mouth. Just a really fabulous wine with incredible length. Roty's best wine of 2005? Drinking 2012-2030. Tasted January 2007.

Neal Martin, Wine-Journal.com, December 2007

The 2005 Mazis-Chambertin displays meaty, salty, cedar-like notes, game, and super-ripe, high-toned distilled black raspberry and cherry. It offers palate-staining crystalline black raspberry fruit, licorice and meaty pan scrapings, an abundance of exceedingly fine tannin, and a clear, poised finish. Expect this to be good for the long haul. Like the other Roty Grand Crus in this vintage, it would certainly be a shame for any who can afford it to open a bottle for at least 12-15 years.
