Mazis Chambertin Grand Cru 2014 - Harmand-Geoffroy
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.

Traduction Devastating hail storms earlier this year left winemakers pessimistic about the prospects for 2014. Up to 40% of the vineyards in Meursault, Pommard, Volnay and Beaune were destroyed by ""size hail golf balls"" in June, with greater damage in other municipalities. But the good weather in September has led to both red and white wines and harvest should be finished by the middle of next week. Chardonnay is fantastic, came with a lot of acidity. The Black Pinot is concentrated with thick skins; they have a good balance between acidity and alcohol, but the fruit is tight. It will be a great year, good for aging. The only problem is quantity.
