Discover the Mazoyères-Chambertin appellation
Mazoyères-Chambertin is a controlled designation of origin (AOC) for red wine produced in Burgundy, France. This appellation is located in the famous town of Gevrey-Chambertin, in the Côte de Nuits region. The terroir of Mazoyères-Chambertin covers an area of 7.60 hectares and is situated on the same slope as the famous Grand Cru Chambertin, of which it is often considered an extension. The soil here is a mixture of clay, marl and limestone, with a high proportion of stones. The grapevines are planted on a gentle slope at an altitude of 260 to 280 meters.
Wines produced in the Mazoyères-Chambertin appellation area are made from the Pinot Noir grape variety and are known for their smoothness, complexity, and ability to age gracefully (up to a dozen years, at least). They often have a deep ruby color and aromas of red and black fruits, with notes of licorice, spices, roses, and undergrowth. On the palate, they are balanced wines, with a beautiful tannic structure and a long and elegant finish. Mazoyères-Chambertin wines are considered one of the best expressions of the Pinot Noir variety in Burgundy.
