3 Mal 100 Punkte

Viele behaupten, es sei der Petrus Italiens. Ob dieser Vergleich legitim ist, gilt es über die kommenden Jahrzehnte zu bestätigen, dass aber MASSETO bereits jetzt die Kult-Ikone ganz Italiens ist, steht außer Frage. 100% Merlot, jährlich weniger als 30.000 Flaschen aus 7 Hektar, erster Jahrgang 1987. Mehr beeindruckend, dies war lediglich 2 Jahre nachdem Lodovico Antinori Ornellaia gründete und Marchese Incisa della Rocchetta mit dem 85er Sassicaia den ersten 100 Parker Punkte Wein Italiens im Keller hatte. Eine mehr als geschichtsträchtige Dekade also, die Italien und insbesondere Bolgheri in den Fokus der weltweiten Weinsammler rückte. Im Jahr 2001 schließlich sorgte der Wine Spectator mit seiner ersten 100 Punkte Bewertung für MASSETO für den letztendlichen Durchbruch.   Kein Geringerer als Andre Tchelistcheff war der erste Berater für das Projekt MASSETO, wir erinnern, Tchelistcheff war einer der frühen Pioniere Kaliforniens, und genau er war derjenige, der diese 7 Hektar lehmhaltiger Böden als außerordentlich geeignet für Merlot ausspähte. Der erste Merlot wurde bereits im Jahr 1984 gepflanzt, 1995 wurde die gesamte Parzelle mit Merlot bestockt. Im Jahr 1991 schließlich stieß Michel Rolland mit hinzu, er verfügt als Inhaber von Chateau Le Bon Pasteur über ein eigenes Pomerol Weingut, bringt somit umfangreiche Erfahrung mit Merlot mit in das Team. MASSETO durchlief mehrere Winemaker, seit dem Jahr 2005 ist der Deutsche Axel Heinz verantwortlich. Wohl zurückgehend auf Tchelistcheffs Erfahrung auf Inglenook etablierte MASSETO partiell sogar sogenannte Buschreben, „head trained“ würde man in USA sagen, in Kalifornien wurde dies allerdings bereits vor 100 Jahren angewandt, eine Praktik die dem besseren Schutz vor Sonne und zudem einer gleichmäßigeren Reifung dient. Seit dem Jahr 2012 wird MASSETO darüber hinaus komplett organisch bearbeitet.   Wir können Ihnen in Kleinstmenge 2016 MASSETO anbieten, x-fach mit 100 Punkten bewertet, extrem limitiert und weltweit gesucht, wie die Blaue Mauritius der Weinwelt.   100 PARKER THE WINE ADVOCATE:

“Masseto has pulled off back-to-back home runs. This is the first time that an Italian wine has earned 100 points in successive vintages. The 2016 Masseto is a thunderstorm of emotions, but it manages to keep them under perfect control. Like the 2015 Masseto before it, this vintage is a seamless wine of the highest pedigree. It represents an encore performance, continuing the string of successes that is bringing Italy to the forefront of the wine world. The first thing you'll notice is the thickness and concentration of the fruit that makes an immediate impact on all the senses, in terms of appearance, aroma and mouthfeel. There is no overstating the sheer power and richness of this iconic vintage of Italy's groundbreaking Merlot. Despite that considerable mass, this Masseto remains delicate and graceful. You gain better perspective as the wine opens in the glass and reveals deeper layers that were not immediately apparent on first nose: dark fruit, spice, sweet tobacco and black cherry. There is great tightness and laser focus to the fruit. I tasted the 2016 and 2015 vintages together for comparison when I scored this wine, and then I tasted this 2016 edition alone about a month later to confirm my impressions. These vintages are identical twins, two perfect wines. 100 JAMES SUCKLING:
“This is so solid and powerful with incredible vertical dense that goes down and down on the palate. Compacted and thick with caressing and polished tannins that are powerful yet refined. Super concentration yet agile and energetic. This is a wine that needs time to come together and resolve all of its amazing components. Reminds me of the legendary 2001. Try after 2023.” 100 FALSTAFF:
"Sattes Rubinrot-Violett. Satte, tiefdunkle Nase, konzentriert, aber auch sehr zugänglich, nach Brombeeren und Maulbeeren, im Hintergrund nach würzigen Macchiasträuchern. Zeigt am Gaumen viele Schichten aus feinmaschigem Tannin, kompakt und saftig, dann viel Tabak, tanzt regelrecht über die Zunge, beschreibt einen langen Bogen, hinten feine Würze."

100 JEB DUNNUCK: "Not yet released, the 2016 Masseto is sensational and unquestionably one of the greatest expressions of Merlot in the world. As always, it's 100% Merlot from a single vineyard that has a complex, diverse set of soils and expositions, causing harvest at times to be spread over as much as three weeks. Aged two years in oak, its deep purple color is followed by a powerful bouquet of black cherries, cassis, spicy oak, damp earth, green tobacco, and spring flowers. It's full-bodied, concentrated and masculine on the palate, with serious minerality, yet it stays flawlessly balanced with magical purity of fruit. With no shortage of concentration and structure, this primordial powerhouse of a Merlot needs 4-6 years of bottle age yet should evolve for decades. Merlot, or wine for that matter, doesn’t get any better!"

94-97 ANTONIO GALLONI: "The 2016 Masseto is finishing its aging in barrel. Dark, sumptuous and super-expressive, the 2016 has so much to offer. Expressive aromatics, silky tannins and layered of dark, resonant fruit are some of the signatures. All the elements simply fall into place in a Masseto endowed with terrific balance and class."

18 JANCIS ROBINSON: "100% Merlot. A common scenario in recent years, the winter of 2016 was characterised by abnormally warm weather with heavy rainfall in February. Budbreak took place on time in the last week of March. The abundance of water in the soil and the warm weather in April led to quick and normal vegetative vine growth. Towards May, temperatures returned to normal, slowing the growth down slightly, bringing about flowering, which took place in the last week of May with dry sunny weather that was perfect for a good fruit-set. The summer temperatures were within the norm with very little rain favouring notable water stress towards the end of the ripening stage. The usual mid-August storms were also absent, maintaining a state of hydric stress through the first part of the harvest, but luckily with significantly cool temperatures at night, allowing the vines to recover from the daytime temperatures. Ripening was steady, building up excellent phenolic potential and a balanced sugar/acidity ratio. Harvest started early on 24 August with the younger vines. In September, a few rain showers arrived, providing enough water in the soil to prevent the vines from shutting down. This allowed the winery to complete the harvest under virtually perfect conditions. The older vines of ‘Masseto centrale’ took great advantage of this situation and continued ripening until the third week of September. The last plots were picked on 20 September."

97 WINESPECTATOR: "A flashy style, featuring concentrated yet fluid flavors of blackberry, plum, violet, cedar and iron, wrapped in toasty, vanilla-scented oak. The acidity is vibrant and refined, but dense tannins provide support as this cruises to a long finish. Best from 2022 through 2045. 330 cases imported. — BS"
