Recently blended and racked prior to tasting. Savoury and very different from Charmes. Very juicy. Rich but much more structured than Charmes. Leathery and lively, long and vibrant. Just a bit dry on the very end.
Anticipated maturity: 2028-2043

The 2015 Mazoyeres Chambertin Grand Cru has a very intense bouquet with lifted redcurrant, raspberry, spice box and quite a noticeable marine influence coming through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannin. This is very focused, almost athletic in terms of tension and somehow “nimble” in the mouth, no heaviness here (a great attribute in such a warm growing season). This is one of the best Mazoyeres Chambertin that I have tasted.
The 2015 Mazoyères-Chambertin Grand Cru has precocious bouquet of ample red cherry and kirsch aromas, nicely defined if unashamedly showy. The palate is medium-bodied, with supple tannin, moderate acidity and gentle grip on the lightly spiced if slightly blunt finish. At the moment, the Premier Crus seem to offer more, but give this two or three years in bottle to achieve full flight. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting. (DIAM 10 closure)
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2055
