AM=93 Moderate wood frames a much more sauvage-inflected nose that speaks mainly of red and dark currant with pungent earth and soft spice wisps. There is outstanding volume to the rich, enveloping and muscular large-scaled flavours that display excellent power and drive on the austere, serious and built-to-age finale. This is impressive and a wine that should amply reward long-term keeping.
AG=91 The 2018 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru has a high-toned, showy bouquet with red plum, raspberry coulis and orange rind scents, a touch of Indian ink emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, a fine bead of acidity with a muscular finish that will hopefully muster more finesse with time.
