93-95 points and 'Don't miss!' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from both Mazis Haut and Bas where the two parcels total a remarkable 1.20 ha). A more deeply pitched nose is composed by notes of dark berry fruit, spice, earth and a hint of animale. There is obvious minerality to the rich, full and naturally sweet broad-scaled yet relatively elegant flavors that are solidly structured, muscular and wonderfully intense while delivering superb complexity on the hugely long and moderately rustic finish. This gorgeous effort is indisputably built for long-term aging. Drink: 2033+. (Jan 2017)"
94 points Stephen Tanzer (Vinous): "[$377 list] Bright full red. Pure but reticent aromas of redcurrant, raspberry and smoky, flinty minerality. At once suave, fine-grained and alive; more sophisticated in texture and scented in the middle palate than the Charmes, showing at least as much energy. Not a gamey style of Mazis, this wine finishes with subtle, resounding fruits, spices, botanical herbs, minerals and flowers and noble tannins. In another quality league from the Charmes and clearly more intense, this beauty leaves the mouth perfumed. (Jan 2018)"
94 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Faiveley''s superb 2015 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru opens in the glass with a brooding bouquet of dark wild berries, smoky plums, grilled meat, rose hip and burnt orange that has already entirely digested its new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and rich, with a layered mid-palate and a serious chassis of fine-grained tannins largely hidden in a deep core of sappy fruit. The finish is long and savory. Cropped at a mere 20 hectoliters per hectare, this is one the highlights of the Faiveley range this year. Drink: 2023-2050. (Apr 2018)"
