2001 frédéric esmonin mazy-chambertin

Update 15.8.2009(17.8.2009)billn


2001 Frédéric Esmonin, Mazy-Chambertin
Medium-plus colour. The nose starts like coal with a thin red-fruit coating – in the glass the fruit becomes ever stronger and the coal, fainter – really, really pretty. There’s not the punch and concentration of the ’99, but the flavour and density are really super. Good balance and a velvet texture, the acidity sucks you into a good, mouth-watering finish. Intense, slightly earthy, red-fruited velvet – super.
Rebuy – Yes

    Have you had the 01 F. Esmonin Mazi lately?? I have a chance to buy some at a really good price.

      Not for a few years Jerry – but at a decent price I’d jump on it – I think it is often a superb wine chez Esmonin….
