The 2015 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru has a very pure but intense bouquet with layers of dark cherry, boysenberry and hints of cassis fruit, struck through with fine mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grip on the entry, very tightly wound and quite linear towards the finish. I think this is a barrel sample that had just curled up into a ball on the day, because there is plenty of energy here, but it will certainly need several years in bottle to really enter its stride.(NM)
The wood treatment is less subtle here and while it doesn't fight with the menthol-inflected red and black cherry, earth and animale-scented aromas, it's close to doing just that. On the plus side there is outstanding power and mid-palate density to the intense and tautly muscular flavors that possess first-rate complexity on the driving and hugely long finish. This is very firm yet there is so much dry extract present that this should not only be able to successfully integrate the oak but may also be approachable after only 7 to 8 years of bottle age.
Bright red-ruby. Very high-pitched, discreet scents of purple fruits, stone and spices; very pure and not at all gamey. Rather massive in the style of the year but extremely primary, even folded in on itself, with dark fruit and licorice flavors dominating. Finishes very ripe, with suave, well-supported tannins and suggestions of saline minerality and citrus bitterness. Not hard, but, as Pierre-Jean Roty suggested, it won't be hard to cellar and forget this wine.(ST)
