A moderately generous wood regimen sets off the ripe and more layered aromas of cassis, the sauvage and iron-inflected earth. There is both good verve and delineation to the bigger and more muscular large-scaled flavors that flash evident muscle and minerality on the delicious and lingering finish.
The 2017 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru has a mélange of red and black fruit on the nose; the oak is neatly integrated, and hints of melted tar and truffle develop with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity and a pleasant edginess toward the brittle finish.
The 2017 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru (Maison Louis Jadot) unfurls in the glass with aromas of dark wild berries, dark chocolate, incense, grilled game and forest floor. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny, with a generous core of sapid fruit that cloaks its ripe tannins.
A pungent nose is composed of strong wood and equally strong reduction. Otherwise there is a round and velvety texture to the muscular big-bodied flavors that brim with both minerality and ample amounts of dry extract while displaying first-rate persistence on the bitter cherry inflected finish that is on the rustic side.
