Winemaker's Notes

The Mazis-Chambertin parcel used by Lucien Le Moine lies in poor clay soils, from the highest part of the vineyard where there is only 4 inches of soil. Mounir likes to say that the sun almost touches the roots. As a result, this wine has powerful, jammy, almost barbecue flavor and a lot of smokiness (some will attribute this to oak, but it is the natural character of the site). Their is an animal side to the wine that at Lucien Le Moine is tempered by an extended aging which brings out notably a red currant character. In addition, with bottle age the fruit becomes more apparent.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2003 Mazis-Chambertin is a brooding, palate-staining behemoth. Its potent aromas explode from the glass unleashing scents of massively ripe dark berries and a myriad of spices. Medium to full-bodied, rich, and deep, it is a concentrated black fruit, asphalt, spice, and licorice-flavored wine of immense power. Projected maturity: 2008-2019."
95 Points

"Wonderfully complex, perfumed nose combines raspberry, flowers, minerals, brown spices and leather. Sweet and pure but quite closed in the mouth, with reticent but precise flavors of spicy red berries and minerals. Very long and perfumed on the back end, with tannins buried in fruit and spice. This is the highest of these 2003s in volatile acidity, at 0.72%. From fruit harvested on September 2, according to Saouma.
Range: 91-94 Points"
