Medium depth of a darkish red colour. The nose is a sublime absolutely pure interpretation of Chambertin, intensity with a fine delicacy too, and this filigree tension which pervades the whole. I found amazing the dancing delicacy that still stays on the palate for a very long time. Absolutely beautiful! Tasted: November 2018.

It's a very poised, precise wine made with two-thirds whole bunches and 40% new wood. It's balanced and focussed, with effortless concentration and a bright, mineral-edged finish.

Vinous, January 2019
(91-93 points) The 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru has a tight-lipped bouquet that demands coaxing from the glass; the 80% whole bunches imparts captivating undergrowth/damp moss aromas that filter through the black fruit. The...   (91-93 points) The 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru has a tight-lipped bouquet that demands coaxing from the glass; the 80% whole bunches imparts captivating undergrowth/damp moss aromas that filter through the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied and quite dense, with grippy tannin and a light espresso note. I find the Mazis-Chambertin has a little more grace on the finish by direct comparison. A bit of a curmudgeon, this will benefit from four or five years in bottle. -- Neal Martin
