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 a .18 ha parcel in Mazoyères; 50% whole clusters). Moderate wood frames very fresh aromas of mostly dark berries, spice, warm earth and a pretty floral component. There is excellent volume and evident power to the well-detailed larger-scaled flavors that are quite firmly structured on the impressively long finish that possesses fine depth. This too is going to require at least some patience, though the underlying material is very promising. (91-94)/2034+” Allan Meadows
“The 2019 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru is in the Mazoyères area and might be renamed in the not-too-distant future. This has a tightly wound bouquet, the 50% whole bunch nicely integrated. Red berry fruit, cola and light spicy notes unfold in the glass but never fully let go. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, layers of candied red fruit and a modicum of spice, fanning out nicely toward the finish. Very fine.” 93 Neil Martin
