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
Dark fruited built on an acidic framework with firm but fine tannins. Interesting reductive ( in a good way) for a house that is reputed to use little sulfur. But this 1er has chops for sure (my first experience with Bel-Air), which immediately confirms that its neighbors are all quite “grand”! — 6 days ago
After 16 years this bottle now is in a great spot. Still abundant in its fruit, some animality but really a state of the art Mazis. The wine does not show any sign of overripeness as 2003 was a very hot year - it still is vibrant as ever. What a pleasure to drink such a great Pinot Noir from a small producer which loves his job and where the son now has taken over. — 22 days 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! — 10 days ago
Ah a Rousseau! An astounding nose, elegant on the mouth, cherry, flowers, multilayered complexity the wine drives an emotional response! Needs two and a half or three hours of slow ox — 2 hours ago
