I don’t think I can remember a burgundy that has smelled so much like a northern Rhône wine. Loved the aromatics! A distinct blood/iron note with herbs, earthiness, and crunchy cranberry. Slightly darker profile on the palate with tar, black raspberries, rose petals and some spice. Good acidity here...not sharp nor flabby, with a soft profile after a short decant. — 4 days ago
Again the JCB collection was impressive. This Mazis was no exception. Surprised by how well it drinks right now. Deep garnet almost black in color. Finesse and focus on the palate. Deep black cherry, root beer and figs. Slight herb and mushroom on the finish. — 4 months ago
Once again, SC describes this nicely, so I'll leave his notes here:
One of those special and unique Burgundy. Extremely elegant, velvety, with that unique typical "Griotte" expression. Very precise. Unlike othee Grand Cru's from Dugat, the oak here is more than intergrated behind a gorgeous violet bouquet.
I thought this was wonderful. Blue fruited and very floral nose, with a touch of oak. Palate brings about some delicious spice, bright cherries and plums, and clear precision with the acidity and finish. There's a real rustic touch with the tannins, although very fine. Begs for even more age in my opinion, but drinks phenomenally now! — 12 days ago
Prior notes still apply, wonderful bottle!
Nose is lightly briney, fresh sage and peppercorn and cold yellow apple.
Palate has chalky red fruits, abundant red & yellow cherry, great acid and even better mineral texture.
I usually decant this bottle to alleviate some of the bubbles (they're crazy), but opted to not today. We're sitting by the chimenea this afternoon, so I'm just letting the bottle air out in the ice bucket. — 8 days ago
