Faiveley owns vines in the best section of this Grand Cru – les Mazis Hauts – which, for many people, is the most thrilling and complex of those which adjoin Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze. “I’m very happy with the Mazis this year,” says wine-maker Jérôme Flous. “It’s the balance of everything you expect from a Gevrey-Chambertin Grand Cru.” Colour is medium-deep purple-ruby, with rich, smoky, intricate aromas. Palate has power and depth of fruit, with structure, richness, freshness and energy. This is great Burgundy (for drinking 2023-2038+).
