Mazy-Chamberlin, Burgundy, France. 13%

A fine old Burgundy. I’m not really qualified to speak but I would doubt there would be any value in keeping this any longer and would be surprised if it lasted for more than 5 more years, but then again I’ve learnt that the aging trajectory of Burgundy is nothing like the short arc of New World Pinot Noir.

Warm moderately rich (drying out a bit?) mid palate with long firm acidity – the acid being a characteristic of the vintage. I don’t mind this acid finish, especially with food.
