The 2015 Mazoyeres Chambertin Grand Cru has a very intense bouquet with lifted redcurrant, raspberry, spice box and quite a noticeable marine influence coming through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannin. This is very focused, almost athletic in terms of tension and somehow "nimble" in the mouth, no heaviness here (a great attribute in such a warm growing season). This is one of the best Mazoyeres Chambertin that I have tasted. (NM)
Good bright, dark red. Explosive nose combines raspberry, plum, mocha, tobacco, earth and smoky underbrush. Wonderfully silky and sweet but with surprising verve and tension to its red berry, spice and salty mineral flavors. This compellingly rich, deep wine finishes with fully ripe, smooth tannins, outstanding length and terrific spicy lift. I underestimated this wine in late 2016; it now displays exceptional class for Mazoyères--and all the elements to make a great bottle. (ST)
Once again there is ample sauvage character to the underbrush, humus and earth nuanced dark currant and floral-scented nose. The mouthfeel of the big-bodied flavors is quite interesting in that it’s at once succulent yet powerful with plenty of punch to the imposingly-scaled, firm and impressively persistent finish. This too is excellent but like the Corton, it’s going to require at least 8 to 10 years of patience first and last for decades thereafter. In a word, terrific.
The 2015 Mazoyères-Chambertin from Domaine Taupenot-Merme is every bit as promising as the Charmes-Chambertin, delivering a superb bouquet of sweet dark berries, dark chocolate, lovely floral tones, roasted venison, vanillin oak and a distinctive topnote of currant leaf. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, sappy at the core and supremely elegant in profile, with lovely focus and grip, fine-grained tannins and lovely backend energy on the long finish. Fine, fine juice. 2025-2075.
