This extraordinary wine originates in the parcels of Mazis-Chambertin just south of Gevrey-Chambertin and north of Morey, in the Côte de Nuits area.
The soils are composed of clayish-limestone. 9 hectares 10 aces. Mazis or Mazy as it is sometimes spelled, is split into an upper and a lower section – both of which are the northerly neighbours of Clos de Bèze. It is suggested that the name Mazis came from the word ‘mas’, which later became ‘maison’ or ‘house’, might refer to a group of houses replaced by vines in the late 1300’s.
