Importer Note:


Cork. As James Halliday has previously noted, ‘Leroux chooses to use Mazoyères rather than the more familiar Charmes Chambertin ― a sign of his independent spirit, and a belief that not all wine sold as Charmes is of appropriate quality.’ There is not only a difference between the Mazoyères part of the Charmes-Chambertin AOC and that of Aux Charmes (both historic lieux-dits within Charmes-Chambertin), but there are also differences between parcels that lie within these lieux-dits themselves. For example, this comes from 0.13-hectare of Mazoyères Dessus, the (favoured) top part of this vineyard, near Combottes and Latricières, bordering Morey. This succulent, layered powerhouse was fermented with 30% whole bunches and raised in 30% new oak. It’s a powerful grand cru that will likely need time.


“The 2015 Mazoyeres-Chambertin Grand Cru has a very intense bouquet with black cherry, red plum and mineral notes, orange sorbet and a touch of orange blossom. The palate is stocky and dense with firm tannin, plenty of sinewy black and red fruit with a dense, quite grippy finish. I would just like a little more finesse on the finish, but that will develop with time and this may warrant a higher score.” 91-93 points, Neal Martin, Wine Advocate #228
