Antonio Galloni - 95 Points

"The 2016 Mazoyères-Chambertin Grand Cru is the darkest of four wines tasted from this vineyard. It has a very seductive bouquet with pure dark cherry and plummy fruit, some high quality new oak that is neatly enmeshed. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannins, well-judged acidity, perhaps more modern in style than its peers, but you cannot deny the precision, the delineation and mineralité in the finish. Great persistence here, a Mazoyères with pedigree. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting."
