charmes-chambertin grand cru, Burgundy, France
This climate possesses the oldest vine in the commune planted in 1881. Gevrey-Chambertin's worldwide reputation is based on the excellence of its Grands Crus. "Mazoyère" means "small houses" in the french language. This Grand Cru is located in cold micro-climate which allows a clear distinction from its neighbour Les Charmes.
Installed on limestone outcrops covered with a red-colored soil. The rocky basement is very resistant but well cracked, which allows the roots of the vine to dive into the deep. This is the explanation of their amazing longevity. Some plots are more than 100 years old.
A very reserved nose requires aggressive swirling to reveal aromas of cassis, plum liqueur, violet and soft earth nuances. Once again there is very good energy and volume to the delicious medium-bodied flavors that are blessed with plenty of sap that imparts a textured quality to the mildly dry finish.
