2015 Domaine Faiveley Mazis Chambertin Grand Cru
Faively's superb 2015 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru opens in the glass with a brooding bouquet of dark wild berries, smoky plums, grilled meat, rose hip and burnt orange that has already entirely digested its new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and rich, with a layered mid-palate and a serious chassis of fine-grained tannins largely hidden in a deep core of sappy fruit. The finish is long and savory. Cropped at a mere 20 hectoliters per hectare, this is one the highlights of the Faiveley range this year.
