Firm, oaky red fruit nose. Rich attack, flamboyant and concentrated, with very ripe tannins and a silky grip. There's good underlying acidity to give finesse and persistence. Drinking Window 2018 - 2032
The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers has a very expressive bouquet with plenty of redcurrant, cranberry and crushed strawberry scents, interwoven with dried rose petal and orange blossom aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, compact red cherry and strawberry fruit and a lovely spicy, almost Oriental note towards the structured finish. There is a lot going on in this Gevrey-Chambertin - totally absorbing and ethereal.(NM)
(from 40+ year old vines from a parcel that measures .87 ha). Here the nose is deeply pitched and overtly Gevrey in character with its assortment of plum, underbrush, freshly turned earth and forest floor nuances on the wild dark berry scents. There is outstanding density to the powerful and serious mineral-inflected big-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract on the superbly long and complex finish. This is terrific but I underscore that doesn’t mean it’s going to necessarily drink well in its youth. 2027+
Bright medium red. Complex if slightly reduced nose offers scents of red berries, flowers and spices. Not a fleshy or sweet style but conveys strong saline minerality, notes of chocolate and mocha and surprising energy. The pH here is a rather high 3.7, which Bruno Clair notes is normal for this wine. The Cazetiers comes from the same rootstock, plant material and altitude as Clair's Clos Saint-Jacques, but this wine typically shows secondary and tertiary aromas earlier. The slightly rustic earth, spice and mocha flavors call for a racking.(ST)
