With a few (very) good contacts, M&M were able to fashion this blend of two iconic Gevrey 1ers – if you buy some wine from them, they might tell you what’s in the bottle – they probably won’t tell you who they got if from though!

2004 Mischief & Mayhem, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er, Crazy Love
Medium colour. The nose starts very tight, just a little warmth, slowly it develops a heavy floral scent – in-part it’s derived from a little of the vintage character, but on a low and ‘nice’ level. There is some fat, silky texture, high-toned fruit, balance and a very impressive length that shows some licorice. Initially I noticed the ‘character’ more in the flavours than the aromas, but the flavours seemed to clear completely. A lovely wine, and indeed a very serious wine…
Rebuy – Yes

    Any idea about the potential ageing ability of these M&M reds Bill?

      Hi Will,
      Given the seriousness of the material, the excellent balance etc., these will last no-problem. I would guess this will only approach maturity at 15+ years of age. Shame you only alerted me to it recently, I’d have loved to have tried one a couple of years ago.
      Cheers, Bill
