    Cuvée presentation

    While somewhat unsung in France, Frédéric Esmonin’s domaine is a real success outside its borders. His work is beyond reproach, both in the vineyards and in the cellar. He proves that to us with this Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru. To make the wine, he is keen to encourage the microbial life of the soil which gives a real identity to the terroir and allows a healthy competition to be maintained between this and the vine stocks. With this in mind, he uses natural compost, leaves weed killers out of the equation, and lets the vegetation take over the vine rows. The Pinot noir that this wine is made from has benefited from an oceanic climate with a semi-continental influence and has drawn its distinction from within limestone and marl soils. The grapes were harvested by hand and destemmed before being macerated for four to five days. Maturation varies depending on the quality of the vintage and therefore takes between 14 and 16 months.
    Made to be aged, the wine reveals a ruby-red colour tinted with purplish gleams. This unleashes very fresh aromas such as red fruits, little black fruits, liquorice and cherry in brandy. We also detect hints of leather which introduce a potent and powerful palate. To be enjoyed with dishes full of character.
