2020 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru, Faiveley

2020 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru, Faiveley

Mazis is the most northern of the Gevrey grands crus, and is renowned for making some of the most seductive wines amongst them. The Faiveley plot benefits from some very old vines, some of which were planted in 1930. This is sleek and seductive, with a rich, detailed, luxurious feel about it.

Tasting notes

The 2020 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru is not quite as expressive as the Latricières on the nose with blueberry and wild strawberry fruit, violet and crushed rock scents, the latter becoming more prominent with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, powerful and saturated in style, fleshy but nicely controlled on the finish. This should age very well in bottle - stylish and suave.
