The 2009 Mazis-Chambertin is a gorgeous, complete wine that reveals considerable elegance and complexity in its vibrant fruit. This elegant, mid-weight Mazis boasts incredible class, harmony and finesse in the way it shows the multiple facets of its personality with time in the glass. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039. I tasted the following wines with Frederic Robert, who works alongside Eric Rousseau. In 2009 Rousseau and his team began picking on September 7, the earliest in Gevrey. For the first time the estate used 20% whole clusters on all the wines except for Clos de la Roche, which was closer to 15%. The 2009s were scheduled to be bottled in April 2011. I also tasted a handful of 2008s that were deeply impressive. Importer: Frederic Wildman & Sons, New York, NY; tel. (212) 355-0700
