There are four barrels of the 2017 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru, the wildest and most brooding of the domaines grands crus, a wine that unfurls in the glass with aromas of rose hip, espresso roast, dark wild berries, forest floor, dark chocolate and cherries. On the palate, its full-bodied, deep and multidimensional with immense depth and concentration, framed by powdery tannins and concluding with a long, pungently intense finish. As usual, this is more reserved, with a tighter-knit core, than either the Mazoyres or the Charmes and it will merit 15 years of bottle age. The Mazis was fermented with fully 90 whole cluster this year.
