Faiveley Mazis-Chambertin Gc Aoc Rg Mazis-Chambertin Gc 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

93-95 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): An interesting if slightly odd nose of reduction and menthol notes added to wild, ripe and layered red berry fruit aromas that complement the gamy and completely backward flavors that are highly complex and possess a firm and mouth coating texture.
