Jancis Robinson – Super savoury and refreshing. Lovely sweet start and then great lively finish. Great appeal for its combination of depth and refreshment. Fine tannins on the end.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2014 Mazoyères Chambertin Grand Cru has a crisp blackberry and bilberry-scented nose, more reticent than the Charmes-Chambertin at the moment and yet it is undeniably extremely focused. There is a subtle marine influence here that adds a little intrigue, some 'je ne sais quoi'. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe black fruit struck through with a keen thread of acidity. There is a little more body and weight on the finish compared to the Charmes-Chambertin, a residue of cold stone and a little pepper on the aftertaste. You come away thinking...that is a very serious wine. Cellar it for 4-5 years and you should have an outstanding counterpart to the domaine's 2014 Charmes-Chambertin.
In a mixed or straight case: $398.04
