Mazis Chambertin Grand Cru 2009- Domaine Henri de Villamont
We are here at the top of the top of the Côte de Nuits in Burgundy with an exceptional wine produced by an excellent producer. A shallow sea withdrew, there are 100 million years, leaving a peneplain consisting of a horizontal stack of marine sédimants deposited in the Jurassic. After the erection of the Alps, faults occurred, one between Lyon and Dijon for the birth of the Côtes de Nuits and Beaune. The full exposed Coast is updated geology of the Jurassic era. Combe de Lavaux will compose a great alluvial fan, prolonging the vineyard to the plain. On one side of this valley lies the Côte des Grands Crus, on the way to Morey, with its new wines. The soil is brown, calcareous soils. The Mazis-Chambertin is one of these 9 Grands Crus. It is installed on the outcrops of marl bajociennes that covers a thin coating of debris and fine silt. The brown limestone soils have developed on these colluvium. Its soil is not thick, not more than ten cm in hauts.Vin exceptional product with an exceptional domain. This wine is frequent reference to its villages, Premier Crus and Grand Cru, a rarity that will delight connoisseurs for a relatively reasonable price. Guaranteed pleasure.

Burgundy can rejoice as the Bordelais: 2009 sign there as a beautiful vintage. Throughout the growing season, the vines benefited from good weather conditions, with sun and heat in summer. In September, maturity was optimal with good balance sugar / acid / aromas. The harvest took place rather calmly, all the grapes having been harvested at the appropriate medium through removal of the ban the harvest. Disease pressure, important enough in the spring, has been contained and summer weather conditions were then avoided the appearance of rot, thereby decreasing the risk of developing these diseases early in the season. White wines: The aromatic profile of a pretty auspicious future. The wines are structured on the roundness and magnitude, with good vivacity. Terroir differences fully play this year. Red wines: The deep and shiny dresses, aromas of red and ripe black fruit (a little premature at this stage), however, portend a good overall quality. On the palate, the wines showed good development, complexity, silky tannins. The feeling of fullness, supported by comfortable lengths, dominates.
