Here the nose is actually quite similar to that of the Charmes though it is slightly more deeply pitched. There is superb richness to the round and impressively concentrated big-bodied flavors that are both bigger and firmer with robust and moderately rustic tannins that are in keeping with the broad-scaled, intense and powerful finish. This isn’t as refined as the Charmes but it is a picture perfect version of a classic Mazoyères. Well worth considering as this is excellent though note that plenty of patience will be required. 94/2024+
