Domaine Henri Rebourseau, Gevrey-Chambertin Mazis Chambertin Grand Cru 1989

Rebourseau Mazi 1989

Twenty-five years on tasting.

Well-colored, luminous ruby, just a touch of development at the rim belies its age.  Fullish and expressive, not too muscular, with a tilt towards the metaphorically dark: Mazis meat and peat.  Dark-skinned plum, forest black cherry, leather, spice and a humid, tarry garrigue.  Vigorous, articulate and quite mineralic at the end.  A wine of richness and amplitude with touches of grand cru finesse: a broody, lunar Mazis.  Quite a positive result from a producer that apparently harvests by machine.  This can still be kept.  Now – 2019+.
