Robert Parker – 94
The 2013 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru is located in the lieu-dit of Mazis-Bas, between the vines of Bernard Dugat (Dugat-Py) and Domaine Maume. Matured in 90% new oak it has a fine clarity on the nose, the oak a little prominent, but that will meld together with time. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe black fruit mixed with blueberry, vanilla and a slither of marmalade. This is quite opulent but it remains nicely controlled with a long finish that is in the same style as Bernard Dugat’s Mazis. This is a knockout wine from Roty, a vin de garde that demands considerable cellaring.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2045
Vinous – 92+
Dark red-ruby. Aromas of small wild red fruits, coffee and spices show a strong oak influence. More expressive in the mouth than on the nose, conveying excellent freshness and energy to the flavors of redcurrant, wild strawberry, spices and mocha-coffee torrefaction. Finishes rich and saline, with a repeating note of redcurrant and substantial tannins to support a long life in bottle. Roty’s sélection massale of Pinot Fin is located next to Bernard Dugat’s holding.
Anticipated maturity: 2022-2032
