Mazy Chambertin, Domaine Armand Rousseau 2012
The 2012 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru has a well-defined bouquet with lively red berry fruit mixed with bergamot and fresh strawberry. It does not quite have the presence of say Bernard Dugat's example: more introverted and bashful. The palate is medium-bodied with candied red fruit on the opening, luscious red berries laced with orange zest and a hint of vanilla. The finish is nigh irresistible - full of vigor and tension with peach on the aftertaste. After a slow opening this finishes with grandeur and ambition.
