This red starts out silky, gaining depth and intensity as it builds to a long, muscular finish. Concentrated yet fluid, tannic yet balanced, framing black cherry, black currant, iron, tobacco and spice flavors. Shows excellent potential. I think we have a tiger by the tail here. Best from 2023 through 2045. — B.S.

Wild but reticent nose offers scents of black raspberry, spices, game, coffee and mint. Then wonderfully rich and surprisingly sweet in the mouth, with a deep core of dark berry, Asian spice and licorice flavors accented by a tangy peppery quality. Expands impressively on the back half, finishing with suave, fine-grained tannins, a captivating blend of sweetness and spiciness, and lingering perfume that goes on and on. -- Stephen Tanzer

The new wood, as ever, is quite assertive, but there's a lot of wine beneath its surface. Focussed, layered and complex, this has plum, raspberry and blueberry fruit with notes of incense and Asian spices.

(96+ points) From a site just to the north of Clos-de-Beze, the 2016 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru from Bernstein shows a perfumed, sappy flower, strawberry and spiced raspberry-scented bouquet that turns more towards dark fruits, game, mint, and sweet truffle with time in the glass. Ripe, medium to full-bodied, expansive, and downright sexy on the palate, it shows the more classic style of the 2016 vintage with air but certainly has loads of upfront charm, personality, and character even today. With sweet tannins, flawless balance, and a great finish, it's just another thrilling wine from Olivier Bernstein. It's drinking spectacularly well today yet give bottles 4-5 years of bottle age, count yourself lucky, and enjoy bottles over the following 20+ years.
