Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru 2019

Domaine Faiveley


Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions that have been practiced for centuries within their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage, benefits from special attention which makes the cuvées unique. Each bottle therefore becomes the faithful reflection of its terroir.

Terroir: Mazis-Chambertin is located mid hillside bordering Clos-de-Bèze to the south and Ruchottes-Chambertin further up the slope. Domaine Faiveley owns a total of 3 acres spread across parcels within Mazis-Haut and Bas. Exposure is due east with loose gravely well drained soil. Vines date back to 1937.

Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a short maceration the must undergoes primary fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and wooden vats. The young wines are aged in 60-70% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 16 to 18 months.

Additional Information

With its smooth tannins and long, lingering finish, this well-balanced wine is the epitome of elegance.

    "Wild and brooding, Faiveley's 2019 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru wafts from the glass with aromas of smoked meats, spices, wild berries and forest floor. Full-bodied, layered and sapid, it's broad and muscular, with a deep core of fruit and youthfully chalky tannins. This is a serious Mazis built for the long haul."

    "The 2019 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru was reduced on the nose, making it difficult to read at the moment, though the palate is certainly well balanced, featuring crunchy black fruit laced with red currant and a generous sprinkling of cracked black pepper toward the finish. Intuition tells me this is a great Mazis-Chambertin; it will just need time."
