    "Aromas of sweet berry fruit, rich forest floor, smoked meats, wild plums and licorice introduce Rousseau's 2019 Mazy-Chambertin Grand Cru, a medium to full-bodied, pretty and fine-boned rendition of this sometimes rather brooding site. Velvety but precise, it's built around bright acids and sumptuous tannins."

    "The 2019 Mazy-Chambertin Grand Cru is clearly a step up from the Charmes-Chambertin, offering deeper and more intense red fruit, rose petal and undergrowth aromas. There is also a more tangible marine influence at play here. The palate is medium-bodied with very good structure. Elegant and poised toward the finish, which leaves hints of tobacco and truffle on the aftertaste. Superb. Quintessentially Rousseau."
