TASTING NOTES

"Intense medium ruby. More reserved than the Latricières, cooler and more mineral to smell. But great depth and richness on the palate, allied to brilliant intensity of fruit and a racy finish, less stern and more succulent than recent vintages. Jérôme explains that it is now benefiting, like the Cazetiers, from parcels purchased from the Dupont-Tisserandot family, making it more complete and profound, to the extent that it may even have the edge on the Latricières this year. Outstanding." Neil Beckett, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 55

"Faively's superb 2015 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru opens in the glass with a brooding bouquet of dark wild berries, smoky plums, grilled meat, rose hip and burnt orange that has already entirely digested its new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and rich, with a layered mid-palate and a serious chassis of fine-grained tannins largely hidden in a deep core of sappy fruit. The finish is long and savory. Cropped at a mere 20 hectoliters per hectare, this is one the highlights of the Faiveley range this year." William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #236

"The 2015 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru has an intense bouquet of precocious red fruit laced with pressed flowers, sage and subtle tobacco scents that gain more clarity as the wine opens in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied and slightly lactic on the entry, and the new oak is a little heavy in proportion to the fruit. This is a grand cru that could go either way; it needs to muster more finesse and charm with bottle age. At the moment, at least on the palate if not the nose, it feels a little introspective and brutish. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Mid smudgy crimson. Ripe dark fruit, plum and damson richness on the nose, lightened by an attractive dusty quality. A shock of oak on the palate, giving a chocolate flavour and texture that rather obscures the fruit, for now at least." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
