Chambertin 2014 Jadot
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
The 2014 Chambertin Grand Cru has a lot of finesse and composure on the nose and to be honest, it shows the 2014 Mazis-Chambertin how it's done -- very focused and complex with great tension and energy. The palate is very well balanced with fine, supple tannin. It is beautifully focused, very natural and effortless with a lingering, minerally finish that goes on and on. This is predictably one of the standouts from Jadot this year.

As is often the case this is at once aromatically cooler and more subdued but even so there is simply knockout complexity to the gorgeously spicy dark berry fruit melange of spice, game, earth and floral elements. The imposingly-scaled and overtly powerful flavors possess first-rate concentration and even more minerality before culminating in a driving and explosively long finish. This is one of the biggest and most structured wines of the 2014 vintage and if you either can't, or won't, cellar it for at least 10 to 12 years there is really no point in acquiring it.
