Winemaker's Notes

The 2011 Charmes-Chambertin Les Mazoyeres is rich in appearance: a deep ruby color flecked with purple. Impressively intense and complex; after opening with a touch of vanilla, it evolves into notes of licorice, spices, and earthy tones. In the mouth, the celebration continues: elegance, concentration, and an extremely velvety texture. There are many fruity aromas (blackberries, blackcurrants, cherries) and a hint of balsamic. Infinite length, with a clean, fresh finish.

Pair with braised veal shanks.

Critical Acclaim

"Don't miss! This is almost exuberantly pinot in basic character with its cool, pure and spicy mix of various red berries combined with a broad array of warm earth and floral nuances. The big-bodied but round and mouth coating flavors are blessed with an abundance of structure-buffering dry extract that imparts a velvety texture to the mid-palate before terminating in a powerful and explosively long finish. Wow, this is very impressive as there is plenty of underlying tension as well as impeccably good balance.

Range: 92-95 Points"
