(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.
A more deeply pitched nose is composed by notes of dark berry fruit, spice, earth and a hint of animale. There is obvious minerality to the rich, full and naturally sweet broad-scaled yet relatively elegant flavors that are solidly structured, muscular and wonderfully intense while delivering superb complexity on the hugely long and moderately rustic finish. This gorgeous effort is indisputably built for long-term aging.
Sweet, ripe raspberry nose with a hint of bonbons. Rich, full-bodied, dense, and powerful on the palate with good breadth of fruit that fills the mouth. Has heft but not at the expense of elegance, and the tannins are well integrated. Long chewy finish. Drinking Window 2020 - 2035. (SB)
