Eclectic Wine Dinner (goosefoot - Chicago IL): Served along the Perrot-Minot 2001 Charmes-Chambertin. both showed classically Gevrey style, with black fruit, woodsy spice, and gamy of sauvage notes. Good overall balance with better freshness than i expected. i agreed with most tasters tonight, slightly preferring this Mazoyeres vs the Charmes in the next glass.
The wine failed to meet my high expectations. I decanted the wine and consumed it over three days. It offered a stinky nose of ripe red fruits and a green stems component. On the palate the medium-bodied wine was sweet, spicy and meaty, with herbs, ripe red fruits, good acidity, a good mouthfeel and medium length. The wine was better on day three (88+) than on day one (87), but overall I did not really enjoy it as it seemed overly sweet, ripe and extracted. Rather disappointing today, though it should improve with time.
