2015 Domaine Taupenot-Merme Mazoyeres-Chambertin Grand Cru
Once again there is ample sauvage character to the underbrush, humus and earth nuanced dark currant and floral-scented nose. The mouthfeel of the big-bodied flavors is quite interesting in that it's at once succulent yet powerful with plenty of punch to the imposingly-scaled, firm and impressively persistent finish. This too is excellent but like the Corton, it's going to require at least 8 to 10 years of patience first and last for decades thereafter. In a word, terrific. Drink 2030+.

The 2015 Mazoyeres Chambertin Grand Cru has a very intense bouquet with lifted redcurrant, raspberry, spice box and quite a noticeable marine influence coming through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannin. This is very focused, almost athletic in terms of tension and somehow "nimble" in the mouth, no heaviness here (a great attribute in such a warm growing season). This is one of the best Mazoyeres Chambertin that I have tasted.
Neal Martin - Wine Advocate (Dec 2016)
Good bright, dark red. Explosive nose combines raspberry, plum, mocha, tobacco, earth and smoky underbrush. Wonderfully silky and sweet but with surprising verve and tension to its red berry, spice and salty mineral flavors. This compellingly rich, deep wine finishes with fully ripe, smooth tannins, outstanding length and terrific spicy lift. I underestimated this wine in late 2016; it now displays exceptional class for Mazoyères--and all the elements to make a great bottle.
