Harmand-Geoffroy, Mazis-Chambertin 2015 Bottle size: 750mlFrance, Burgundy
'The 2015 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru is superb, offering up a classic bouquet of wild berries, cherry, grilled game, subtle mint and a framing of smoky new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and concentrated, with true grand cru depth and dimension, its tannins fine-grained and its finish long and penetrating. This is a powerful Mazis-Chambertin that retains excellent energy and freshness despite its considerable volume, and which could compete with some of Gevrey's finest. Drink 2023 - 2050.' – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 95/100
'Here the toasty and menthol-inflected nose is slightly more deeply pitched with attractively spiced aromas that include iron-infused warm earth notes as well as animale and underbrush hints. The succulent yet overtly powerful big-bodied flavors are blessed with ample dry extract that coats the palate on the very firm, concentrated and driving finish where a touch of warmth arises. There is real energy here and while the tannins are notably prominent at the moment, this is actually fairly refined for a young Mazis. Drink 2030+.' – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 93/100
About Domaine Harmand-Geoffroy:
Gérard Harmand and his son, Philippe, lead this 9 hectare family-run domaine that was established in the late nineteenth century. Domaine Harmand-Geoffroy produce quintessential Gevrey-Chambertin from a superb range of terroirs including the remarkable, old vine holdings in Lavaux St Jacques, Champeaux, Perrière and La Bossiere (Monopole), as well as a healthy slice of the Grand Cru Mazis-Chambertin. ‘I agree completely with Harmand’s assertion that they’re now making wines that are better balanced and less overtly rustic than in the past’ writes Allen Meadows. This once under-the-radar and overperforming property is now firmly in the cult category.
‘Having imported Harmand-Geoffroys wines since the 2013 vintage, we are starting to see how well they mature. In fact, these Gevreys must be aged for 5 years before showing off their full spectrum of flavour. Great value, classic Red Burgundy.’ – Roland
