Description

2015 "Mazy-Chambertin" Grand Cru AOC, Domaine Armand Rousseau


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:  
The 2015 Mazy-Chambertin Grand Cru has a delightful bouquet that can only put a grin on your face. There is significantly more red fruit here compared to the Charmes-Chambertin, very pure with red cherries and crushed strawberry. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, lively on the entry with a little more structure and backbone than the Charmes-Chambertin, fanning out with conviction on the long, white pepper-tinged finish. This is a glorious Mazis-Chambertin that will offer between two and three decades of drinking pleasure.(NM) Inner quote mark (12/2016) 95 points Decanter:  Outer quote mark Good depth of colour and an intense, lifted nose of bright raspberry fruit with a light smokiness in the background. Rich, full-bodied and weighty palate, very concentrated. A mighty Mazis without heaviness or clumsiness, refreshed by the fine acidity. Will be magical.Drinking Window 2019 - 2035.(SB) Inner quote mark (2/2017) 92-94 points Allen Meadows:  Burghound Outer quote mark A much more sauvage-suffused nose features plenty of warm earth character on the spicy, floral and dark currant aromas. This too possesses a supple mid-palate as the slightly bigger and richer medium-bodied flavors display excellent power and punch on the relatively robust and mineral-driven and well-balanced finish. While this should be approachable young, if you wish to experience it at its peak plenty of patience will be required. Inner quote mark (1/2017) 92-94 points Vinous:  Outer quote mark Bright, dark, classic Pinot red. From a new barrel: Darker in its fruit character than the Charmes-Chambertin but with a sweet, almost candied quality to the aromas and flavors of black cherry, cola and licorice. Very fine-grained and sweet. From a once-used barrel: Black cherry and licorice flavors show less easy sweetness but more clarity and detail. Finishes juicy and longer, with more minerality and energy. The ultimate blend will be 20% new oak and should be a beauty.(ST) Inner quote mark (1/2017) 93 points John Gilman:  Outer quote mark The 2015 Mazy-Chambertin chez Rousseau was raised in twenty percent new wood this year and was showing beautiful potential. The nose delivers a fine constellation of black cherries, dark berries, currant leaf, a complex base of black minerality, venison, a hint of vanillin oak and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and shows off lovely mid-palate depth, with fine focus and grip, suave tannins and lovely balance on the long, nascently complex and tangy finish. Another lovely bottle in the making. (Drink between 2025-2075)
