2002 Picard Michel, Mazis-ChambertinApr. 2010
The fruit aromas are sweeter on this Mazis after the JC Boisset, still with a little mineral complexity but essentially quite primary. A big structure this, and while there seems plenty of wine to balance I find myself concentrating on the ‘building’, not it’s contents.
2008 Picard Michel, Bâtard-MontrachetApr. 2010
Here is a very ‘together’ nose, understated but very elegant. Ripe and sweet, some fat too. The flavour is more about fruit-stones than fruit. Intense and long finishing. Very good wine.
2006 Picard Michel, MontrachetApr. 2008
Dense fruit with a subtle oak undertow. Concentrated yet mineral with a good spine of acidity. Savoury length and more mineral than any of the Bâtards, but not necessarily better.
2006 Picard Michel, CortonApr. 2008
Wide aromatics with good red and black fruit – though limited depth. Sweet, lithe and concentrated. It’s tannic but quite well balanced. Dark oak lingers on a good length.
