- Tasting Notes
As is usually the case with this wine it is much more deeply pitched and more obvious Gevrey in character with its pungently earth and animale aromas of various red and dark berries that are trimmed in subtle spice and sandalwood nuances. There is excellent volume and power to the full-bodied and muscular flavors that terminate in a very firm, deep and impressively persistent finish. This isn’t particularly refined but the complexity is impressive.

Full dark red. Strong smoky minerality on the nose, with raspberry and spice notes emerging with air; less subtle than the Charmes today but more satisfying and expressive. Plush, fat and sweet on the palate, with the dark raspberry, spice, licorice and black pepper flavors currently dominated by saline minerality. Seriously dense, rich wine with a rising, palate-staining finish that throws off notes of underbrush, tobacco, iron and spices. The noble tannins owe largely to the high percentage of millerandé berries. A superb showing for this wonderfully silky wine, which will probably be for drinking after the Charmes.

The 2014 Mazoyères Chambertin Vieilles Vignes has a very precise bouquet, similar to the Charmes-Chambertin, though the fruit here is a little darker and revealing attractive star anise scents with aeration, though very discrete. The palate is very well balanced and harmonious, just a little wood to be integrated on the finish; which is quite linear and structured with good length. It is somewhat reserved at the moment and I wonder whether the Charmes-Chambertin has the edge in terms of personality.
