From Mazoyères, vines planted in 1980, a small .19 hectare parcel. WOW. Incredibly deep and sappy, intensely violet, with plenty of drive and focus for all of its richness. My first instinct note was “!”, and then “F’in great!!”. Gorgeous, like deep savory violet velvet sauce…..
“(from Mazoyères). A note of herbal tea is present on the otherwise ripe yet appealingly fresh nose of cherry, red and dark currant, earth and discreet sauvage nuances. There is excellent richness and mid-palate density to the dusty, mouth coating and markedly firm flavors that deliver fine depth and first-rate persistence. Note however that this too will need at least 6 to 8 years of cellaring and 12 to 15 is ultimately likely to be necessary. (91-94)/2027+” Allan Meadows
