2009 Pascal Marchand Mazy-Chambertin Grand Cru
Allen Meadows - Burghound
*Sweet Spot* A classic nose that is distinctly sauvage and even more complex if less elegant than that of the Latricières with more earth and game emphasis that is followed by ripe, supple and relatively seductive medium weight plus flavors that possess buckets of extract on the concentrated, intense and seriously persistent finish. This should be outstanding in time though note that yet again, lots of it will be required.
Sweet berry, licorice, and Asian spice aromas and flavors highlight this supple, charming red. Open and enjoyable now, with moderate tannins in reserve. Fine, spicy length. Drink now through 2026. 22 cases made.

Good medium red. Very ripe, musky aromas of cherry, game, gingerbread, smoky minerality and sweet oak. Tactile, fine-grained and wild, with compelling inner-palate energy and saline complexity to the flavors of red berries, herbs, spices and pepper. Finishes chewy, focused and very long, with suave tannins. (ST)
