- Tasting Notes
This is markedly less elegant with its overtly sauvage character on the complex mix of red and dark currant, earth, underbrush and discreet floral hints. There is more obvious volume and power to the big-bodied flavors that possess both good concentration and excellent power, all wrapped in a serious, austere and rustic finish that presently is much less complex than the Charmes. It’s of course possible that this will add more depth than I imagine but the Charmes appears to have more upside potential at this early juncture.

Spice, incense, wild berry and floral aromas and flavors signal this succulent, pliable red. Sleek and intense, with a driving finish of fruit, spice and mineral elements.

Healthy dark red. Highly aromatic nose offers scents of raspberry, allspice, gingerbread and wild herbs, along with a hint of wildness. Concentrated and creamy in the mouth, conveying a strong savory character to the red berry, spice and underbrush flavors. This was vinified with 100% whole clusters but comes across as even sweeter than the Charmes. Finishes with smooth tannins and lovely perfumed persistence.

The 2013 Mazoyeres-Chambertin Grand Cru, which is matured in around 30% new oak, has a very harmonious bouquet with raspberry, strawberry pastilles and a touch of iodine developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannins that are suppler than the Charmes- or Chapelle-Chambertin, thereby lending the finish ample roundness to complement the structure underneath. Give this several years in bottle this is a very capable Mazoyeres.
