Dominique Laurent Mazis Chambertin Grand Cru 2005

酒評分數:RP (93-95)+


The 2005 Mazis Chambertin Vieilles Vignes represents a true old vines selection, inasmuch as the young vines that are inter-planted are picked and vinified separately. A bit reduced and animal on the nose, it opens to a beautiful, concentrated expression of cherry and raspberry confiture on the palate, with both juicy fresh fruit and lightly caramelized aspects as well, and with deep, rich, roasted underlying meatiness and a wet stone and graphite mineral character. Creamy in texture, generous in its ripeness and sweetness of fruit, yet clear, refined, and strikingly mineral in its formidable, expansive length, this is a compelling wine yet one that is almost surely not showing its full potential today.
