Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru Cuvée Madeleine Collignon
|AOC: Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru|
|Grapes: Pinot Noir|
The intense raspberry and red fruits spreads dramatically across the whole palate, with very fine-grained tannins and just enough pleasing acidity to provide the counterpoint. It leaves a glow of pure yet intense red fruit suffusing the palate. Magical persistence, probably enjoyable quite early, but definitely capable of lasting for the long term.

This magnificent plot of Grand Cru vineyard was donated by Jean Collignon in 1976, and named in memory of his mother. The vines lie at the heart of the hillside, on the same contours as its immediate neighbour, Chambertin Clos de Bèze. Nearly 60% of this Cuvée comes from vines planted in 1947. This no doubt contributes significantly to the remarkable fruit density and structure of the wine, to its silky tannins and to its length of aftertaste, which are consistently exceptional.
