Subtle wood spice notes highlight the reserved, fresh and even cool yet ripe liqueur-like red and black currant aromas that are liberally sprinkled with sauvage, earth and spice nuances. The intense and tautly muscular big-bodied flavors that are slightly wild in character display outstanding length on the structured and youthfully austere finish that is shaped by dense but fine tannins. Good stuff here that is clearly built for the long haul.
Saturated dark red. A bit less high-pitched on the nose than the Charmes-Chambertin, dominated by musky soil tones and flinty minerality. Then wonderfully plush, concentrated and seamless on the palate--totally different in style from the Charmes. This boasts the texture and thickness of the best 2015s, but will need time to find its ultimate harmony. Finishes with a considerable mass of tannins and strong medicinal reserve. Still holding something back, this wine may yet make my score look overly conservative. (ST)
The 2015 Mazoyères-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru has the most vivacious and intense bouquet amongst Christophe's 2015s, billowing red and dark cherries, creme de cassis, crushed violets and blood orange. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and extremely well-judged acidity. As such, there is outstanding focus here and a sense of precision running all the way through to the finish. This is a seriously fine Mazoyères-Chambertin that must rank as one of the best this domaine has produced. (NM)
