Very fragrant and relatively lightweight. Crunchy and zesty. Very racy with lots of acidity. Chewy and only just obviously grand cru. Sinewy.

Good bright, deep red. Wild, vibrant nose offers black cherry, black raspberry, minerals and spices; conveys a small-berry feel. At once dense and juicy; more masculine than the Charmes-Chambertin but also sappy and fined-grained. In a more backward style but already conveys excellent soil accuracy. Finishes with serious but well-buffered tannins and strong soil tones.

The 2011 Mazy-Chambertin Grand Cru demonstrates more precision on the nose than the Charmes-Chambertin, a little more lift and vigor with pretty black cherries, cassis and dark chocolate scents. The palate is medium-bodied with some oak to be subsumed on the entry. There is good weight here, though it is not a complex Mazy-Chambertin compared to previous vintages. Still, it is showing fine composure and focus on the finish. Drink now-2020.
