DESCRIPTION

Burghound (Allen Meadows) 92-95 "Don't Miss."

"Here the expressive nose isn't quite as toasty but it's still far from subtle while managing not to unduly mask the more sauvage-inflected dark berry and forest floor scents. There good density and solid power to the muscular yet reasonably refined flavors that also evidence ample minerality on the beautifully long finale where the supporting tannins are slightly riper. This too should age effortlessly and I often prefer the Latriciè€res but in 2017, the Mazis appears to have a slight edge in quality." (January, 2019)

 

Decanter (Tim Atkin, MW) 96

"The palest of the Faiveley family's mouthwatering array of grand cru reds, this is almost indecently scented, sensuous and appealing. Red cherry and raspberry fruit flavours combine playfully on the palate, framed by understated oak and crunchy acidity. Drinking Window: 2025-2030." (November, 2018)

 

Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 92-95

"One of the high points of the range is the 2017 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru, a striking wine that wafts from the glass with aromas of dark berries, tar, spices, grilled game, licorice, violets and cherries. On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and lavish, with real concentration at the core, supple tannins, tangy acids and a long, mouthwatering finish." (January, 2019)

 

Vinous Media (Neal Martin) 92-94

"The 2017 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru is a blend of the original Faiveley parcel plus around 0.5 hectares gained through their acquisition of Dupont-Tisserandot. It has quite an intense bouquet of blackberry, briar and wild strawberry scents, coming across a little burly compared to the more nuanced Latricières-Chambertin. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, the palate perhaps showing more potential than the aromatics at the moment. There is very good weight here, fine mineralité and quite a precise, sustained finish. Give it five or six years in bottle." (January, 2019)

 

Winehog (Steen Öhman) 93-94

"The Mazis-Chambertin is surprisingly forward this year. The bouquet is quite floral offering plenty of spicy fruit. On the palate generous and vivacious - with the typical 2017 note present. A lovely Mazis in the making. Drink from 2029." (12/27/18)
