Mazis Chambertin, Domaine Denis Mortet 2018

Tasting Notes

Once again there is moderate oak influence present on the liqueur-like aromas of various dark berries, earth, spice, floral and game. The rich, full-bodied and concentrated flavors possess imposing volume and good minerality on the impressively persistent, complex and stony finale. This too is expressly built-to-age and wine that I would advise not touching for at least 10 years. Note: from a holding of .20 ha

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (77), January 2020

A wild and brooding bouquet of dark berries, cinnamon, grilled meats, black chocolate and rich soil tones introduces the 2018 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru, a full-bodied, broad and textural wine that's deep and layered, with powdery tannins and complex carnal nuances to complement its sweet core of fruit, concluding with a sapid finish. Mortet told me that this is one of the higher-pH cuvées in the cellar this year, and I suspect it will drink well comparatively early by the standards of young Mazis-Chambertin.
