AG=95 Soft, silky tannins set the backdrop for the 2011 Mazis-Chambertin. Sweet floral notes meld into red berries and cinnamon. Dried rose petal and violet nuances inform the layered, intensely perfumed finish. The flavours are pure, striking and lifted. In other words: classic Mazis. This is another wine that has developed beautifully over the last year.
AM=92-95 (Don't Miss!) An attractively fresh and pure nose of remarkably complex red berry fruit aromas and a multitude of different floral and spice elements precede intensely mineral-driven middle weight flavours that possess a supple yet quite finely detailed mid-palate. There is a very mild touch of rusticity to the powerful, impeccably well-balanced and gorgeously persistent finish. This is textbook Mazis and well worth considering.
