A beautiful deep colour for this Château Mazeyres 2010. Its tremendous vividness of colour makes us want to find out what is hidden behind this finery. We discover a very delicate nose, quite complex, combining aromas of liquorice, with scents of blackberry and dried straw, all on a cleverly proportioned backdrop of woodiness. A hint of minerality strengthens remarkable elegance. A sensation of “light powerfulness” develops on the palate, because the wine is so rich and at the same time the tannins are extremely smooth and finely formed. The crispness of Château Mazeyres 2010 gives us an indication of the ideal ripeness of the grapes. The young age of this wine keeps powerfulness of flavour confined at present, but it is not far away. For this wine to give us its very best, we will have to wait until 2015 – 2017.
