Faiveley Mazis-Chambertin 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

Not yet reviewed; 2015 vintage rated 93-96 points by Stephen Tanzer (Vinous): (entirely destemmed): Bright dark red. Restrained but very pure aromas of raspberry, smoky minerals and game. Viscous, round and generous in the mouth but with terrific fruit intensity and balancing energy; this rather full-bodied wine is ultimately more primary than the Latricières. A wonderfully concentrated wine with outstanding spicy depth and palate-staining perfume. The blend now includes vines in Mazis-Chambertin du Bas, which came to Faiveley with their purchase of Domaine Dupont-Tisserandot in late 2013. While this parcel is not the best location in this grand cru (and the vineyard is missing a lot of vines), the plant material here is excellent, and this fruit improved the wine, according to Erwan Faiveley. The crop level in Mazis was just 20 hectoliters per hectare in 2015.

Bright deep red. Very deep aromas and flavors of raspberry redcurrant smoke and crushed rock. At once penetrating and utterly fine-grained; explosive sappy perfume fills the mouth without leaving any impression of weight. Pinot just doesn t pull off this trick anywhere but in Burgundy s top sites. Finishes with noble tannins and outstanding palate-staining length. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

A very deeply pitched nose that displays fresh red and dark berry fruit and floral aromas along with notes of the sauvage that continue over to the serious and very solidly structured big-bodied flavors.

"($250) Good deep red. Ineffably complex aromas of wild red fruits, menthol, white pepper, minerals and powdered stone. A wine of great nobility, a bit imploded on entry, then wonderfully complex and aromatic in the middle, with terrific sappiness and energy to the lightly saline flavors of red fruits, spices, licorice and crushed stone. The rising, endless finish titillates the taste buds. This makes the Latricieres seem dry in comparison." Steven Tanzer's International Wine Cellar , Mar/Apr 2011, Steven Tanzer

A distinctly sauvage and somber dark berry fruit nose gives off notes of iron tinged warm earth, underbrush, crushed herbs and a hint of smoke followed by rich, full and moderately wooded full-bodied flavors that are notably powerful and supported by...

An interesting if slightly odd nose of reduction and menthol notes added to wild, ripe and layered red berry fruit aromas that complement the gamy and completely backward flavors that are highly complex and possess a firm and mouth coating texture.
