Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : This climat "Mazis-Chambertin" is in the very heart of the prestigious Grands Crus of Gevrey Chambertin. It is located on a mid slope facing east. Its nearest neighbour is the famous "Chambertin Clos de Bèze".
The Vintage 2003 : Exceptional due to a warm summer which incited an early harvest before the end of august. Low yields. Outstanding concentration and fully matured during the harvest. Aging in cask during 12 months
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of preserved red fruit (raspberry) and "liqueur de cerise", with a delicate vanilla note. Concentrated, generous and well-structured. Fine texture with finely grained tannins. Well-integrated oak note. Outstanding persistence.
Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled or en sauce and all cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
