1998 Maume, Mazis-ChambertinOct. 2018
Ooh – here’s a forward nose – lots of volume – with plenty of herb in a large expanse of complexity. Cushioned depth to the palate, considerable concentration, still a grain of tannin. Layered, intense, with waves of flavour, faintly bitter and saline. Never a sweet wine, never a comforting wine – but frankly who cares, this is really super, indeed invigorating stuff. ​
2009 Maume, Bourgogne RougeMar. 2011
There are 1 hectare of Bourgogne vines are within the commune of Gevrey next to the Gevrey villages lieu-dit of Platières. Round with really good flavour. There’s some tannin of-course and a strong, slightly bitter finish.
2009 Maume, Corton-CharlemagneMar. 2011
The nose is wide and quite interesting. In the mouth there’s both power and minerality.
2009 Maume, VolnayMar. 2011
There’s a little reduction on the nose. In the mouth fruity and round – quite long too – in-between there’s some slightly rustic tannin, though this will be but a memory in two or three years.
2009 Maume, Pommard Les ArveletsMar. 2011
The nose is high-toned with pretty red berries. Again there’s slightly rustic tannin under ebullient fruit – good minerality though. This is quite interesting.
2009 Maume, Gevrey-Chambertin Combe aux MoinesMar. 2011
Dark fruit dovetails with hints of reduction. Very mineral then slowly leaches mouth-watering flavour. This is very impressive.
2009 Maume, Gevrey-ChambertinMar. 2011
An assemblage from 10 parcels of vines which normally makes 3 cuvées; a Gevrey Aux Etelois, a Gevrey En Pallud (seventy-five year-old vines) and this wine. A spiced-bread nose. The serious flavour grows and grows. Will be very good.
2009 Maume, Gevrey-Chambertin ChampeauxMar. 2011
A little reduction. Lots of cherries in the flavour and intense flavour too. Long finishing.
2009 Maume, Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux St.JacquesMar. 2011
Aromatically understated. Round and balanced ; another wine with hints of vanilla. Long and lingering. Indeed very long…
