The balance and finesse of a Mazis-Chambertin wine by Faiveley

The estate

Founded in 1825 by Pierre Faiveley in the village of Nuits, the Domaine Faiveley is one of the highlights of the Côte de Nuits. Run today by Erwan and Eve Faiveley, the seventh generation of the family, the Faiveley house gives wine lovers a superb range, perfectly reflecting the great mosaic of Burgundy terroirs.

The vineyard

This Grand cru 2016 from the Faiveley estate is a Mazis-Chambertin wine developed from a plot of 1.56 hectares facing east and placed on the "Mazis Haut" site, which owes its name to the "Mazis" – little houses – which were once found there. The vines were planted in 1937, 1959 and 1974 on shallow soils with a unique terroir : an alluvial cone where scree has collected from the combe.

Winemaking and ageing

The grapes harvested and sorted by hand were then gathered in varying proportions according to the vintage. A daily treading of the cap was carried out to extract colour, tannins and scents. After 19 days in the vat, the alcoholic fermentation finished. The free-run wine was drained by gravity and a slow and gentle pressing of the marc gave a press wine of great purity. The wines were then aged over 16-18 months in French oak casks (60% new casks and 40% one-wine casks). These casks were selected for the fineness of their grain and moderated warmth.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
From bottle, the 2016 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru is showing superbly, wafting from the glass with a wild and complex bouquet of blackberries, cassis, grilled game, currant leaf and candied peel. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, its satiny tannins beautifully cloaked in a succulent core that marries pristinely ripe fruit with alluring hints of the savory and the carnal, concluding with a long and expansive finish. Finer boned than the more gourmand 2015 rendition, this is an incredibly classy effort that will offer a broad drinking window.
