Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Mazis Chambertin Grand Cru from Faiveley has a beguiling nose with brambly red berry fruit, damp earth, cold flagstone and just a faint smear of marmalade. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, supple tannin matched with assiduous acidity that lends tension and poise. It is quite backward, even compared to other grand cru 2012s, but there is the substance and the breeding here to suggest a seriously long and pleasurable evolution. This is one of the standouts of the Côte de Nuits. - Neal Martin

Burghound, January 2014
(BH92-95 points) Here the nose is quite similar to that of the Latricières save for the fact that the sauvage character is even more pronounced. As is typically the case there is also more size, weight, richness and power... (BH92-95 points) Here the nose is quite similar to that of the Latricières save for the fact that the sauvage character is even more pronounced. As is typically the case there is also more size, weight, richness and power if a bit less refinement and minerality to the large-scaled flavors that also brim with dry extract that does a fine job of buffering the hugely long finish. If you prefer a bit more elegance, buy the Latricières, and if you prefer robust power, buy the Mazis, though there's no harm in liking both!

Full medium red. Rather wild aromas of raspberry, smoky minerals and pungent sandalwood.

Rather wild aromas of raspberry, smoky minerals and pungent sandalwood. Then plush, tactile and savory in the mouth, displaying classically dry flavors of strawberry, raspberry and minerals. At once polished and youthfully clenched, this distinctly saline, highly concentrated wine finishes with almost painful length and an impression of weightlessness. Less sweet in the early going than Faiveley's stunning Clos de Bèze but showing much more verve and fruit intensity than a barrel sample did in November of 2013. 94+
