2012 Domaine Faiveley Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru, Cote de Nuits, France
Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Mazis Chambertin Grand Cru from Faiveley has a beguiling nose with brambly red berry fruit, damp earth, cold flagstone and just a faint smear of marmalade. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, supple tannin matched with assiduous acidity that lends tension and poise. It is quite backward, even compared to other grand cru 2012s, but there is the substance and the breeding here to suggest a seriously long and pleasurable evolution. This is one of the standouts of the Côte de Nuits.
Wine SpectatorThis is tight and reticent, featuring black cherry and blackberry fruit locked up by dense, burly tannins, with spice and mineral notes adding depth. Finishes with balance and sweet fruit. Just needs time. Best from 2019 through 2035.
