Good deep red. Aromas and flavors of black raspberry and espresso are sexed up by a wild gamey character. Very fine-grained and expressive in the mouth, with the wine's subtle sweetness nicely complemented by saline minerality. A classic Mazis for the cellar, with its animal aspect leavened by nervy acidity and serious medicinal reserve. Has the tannic spine to ensure a slow evolution. I may be underrating this superb grand cru.
