Geography & Climate
- Location: 
- Surrounded by Premier Crus to the east (Au Closeau; La Perriêre; Clos Prieur-Haut; Les Cherbaudes) and north (Les Corbeaux); surrounded by Grand crus to the south (Clos de Bèze) and west (Ruchottes-Chambertin).
- On the right side of the road leaving Gevrey, Mazis-Chambertin is divided into two sections:
- Mazis Haut
- The portion found on the upslope.
- Considered the finer of the two sections, even though origin is never stated on the label.
- Mazis Bas
- Mazis Haut
- Terrior: 
- Largely flat with a gentle slope in the upper sections.
- Broadly similar to those of Clos de Bèze with which it is contiguous: brown limestone with the occasional Bajocian bedrock outcrop.
- In the Mazis Haut, the underlying rock is Prémeaux limestone with abundant light-colored stones in the soil.
- In the Mazis Bas, the soils are mainly Entroques, with some Prémeaux.
- The ground is cold (terre froide) due to the cool air funneling down from the Combe Grisard.
Style of Wine
