International Wine Cellar 94-97 Points
Good deep red. Ineffably complex aromas of wild red fruits, menthol, white pepper, minerals and powdered stone. A wine of great nobility, a bit imploded on entry, then wonderfully complex and aromatic in the middle, with terrific sappiness and energy to the lightly saline flavors of red fruits, spices, licorice and crushed stone. The rising, endless finish titillates the taste buds. This makes the Latricieres seem dry in comparison.-ST

A classic Mazis nose is distinctly animale with its pungently earthy, gamy and lightly mineral-infused wild red and blue berry aromas that complement perfectly the rich, powerful and remarkably concentrated flavors that are presently brooding and so primary that this has not yet completely arrived at its final form. There is a bit of wood present on the monumentally long finish but the density of extract is such that it will have no trouble successfully integrating it.
