Only 8.27 hectares in size, Mazis-Chambertin is one of the most northern Grand Cru in Côte de Nuits. The fossil-rich soils of hard rock produce an energetic, full-bodied and elegant Pinot Noir. Located on two climats of Gevrey-Chambertin, “Mazis-Haut” and “Mazis-Bas”, this Grand Cru was made for aging: it will take years to reach its apogee and reveal its full potential for intensity and complexity.
Varietal: Pinot Noir
The essence of Pinot Noir
With a clear, medium ruby color, Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru 2017 embodies the essence of Pinot Noir. The nose shows intense aromas of ripe and cooked fruits, such as plums and strawberry jam, as well as notes of sweet spices like vanilla and cinnamon. The palate confirms these flavors and reveals hints of dry flowers, fur, and wild animality. With a long finish and pronounced tannins, this red wine will evolve over the decades to come.
A generous year
2017 began the best possible way, with a sunny and warm spring and no threats of hail or frost. Bud break happened at the beginning of April, soon followed by blooming. Summer was marked by scorching episodes, pushing maturation forward. Harvest started over the last days of August, two weeks earlier than usual, and lasted until mid-September. With healthy, ripe grapes and yields back to normal, 2017 has since proven its high-quality and long-lasting potential.
