Mazis Chambertin, Domaine Denis Mortet 2016

Tasting Notes

The 2016 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru, which debuted in 2014, is the first vintage that Arnaud Mortet feels is part of the domaine. This was not affected by frost and was picked at 35 hectoliters per hectare. It has a ripe and intense bouquet with the 70% new oak and 50% whole bunch deftly integrated, very harmonious with superb mineral undertones. The palate is very poised, nicely structured, here the whole bunch more evident and lending and earthiness toward the masculine finish that indicates serious longevity. This is an astonishingly good sequel to the awesome 2015 Mazis.

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, December 2017

Since 2014. Medium deep purple, quite discreet, showing a touch more oak, though still 70% new wood. Almost herbal notes in among the red fruit, an elegant not a massive wine. Very good length behind.
