Faiveley Mazis Chambertin 1978
Mazis-Chambertin has shallow, chalky soils that are excellent for the production of high-quality wine. The higher end of the slope has particularly thin limestone soils. Water drains freely from the soils, which helps to discourage vigor and forces the vine's energy into grape production. While Faiveley has a total of 112 hectares (277 acres) in Burgundy, their holdings in this appellation are only 1 ½ hectares (3.7 acres). The ullage on this bottle is very good and the cork is very tight.
