This is completely different and much more typically Gevrey with its earthier and more sauvage-inflected aromas of ripe dark berries and forest floor that are also trimmed in noticeable but not intrusive wood toast. There is more volume and power to the equally mineral-driven and concentrated flavors that possess real drive on the strikingly complex finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. This notably structured effort should be first-rate if you have the patience to allow it to mature. (92-94)/2030+
Bright, full red. Ripe but cool scents of dark raspberry, spices, minerals and bitter chocolate. Densely packed and very intense, conveying a subtle sweetness to its dark berry, mineral and spice flavors. Finishes very long and gripping, with suave tannins arriving late. With its energy and minerality, this beauty really resounds on the back end and perks up the taste buds. Jadot's vines are in the middle of the slope, which Barnier described as "not the most calcaire section of Cazetiers."
The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers has a detailed and expressive bouquet with a convincing sous-bois infused bouquet that gains intensity in the glass, plenty of detailed red berry fruit blossoming with aeration. The palate is detailed and precise with crisp acidity, maybe compact at the moment, yet the delineation on the finish is very commendable. I hope by bottling there is just a little more persistence on the aftertaste. These tasting notes belong under the umbrella of "Louis Jadot", though it should be pointed out that these bottlings are under "Domaine Louis Jadot", that is to say that the company owns the vines rather than through contracts with growers. See also "Maison Louis Jadot", "Domaine Gagey" and "Domaine des Héritiers Jadot".
Delicate and restrained red fruit nose with a light smokiness. The lean attack leads into a stylish and intense palate with fine-grained tannins and ample acidity. Focussed rather than opulent and deep, this needs time to flesh out. The structure seems excellent though, and the finish is long. Drinking Window 2018 - 2028
