- Tasting Notes
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.

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.

Medium red. Very ripe but reticent scents of roasted red fruits, plum and damp earth. Fresher in the mouth than on the nose, conveying more energy than the Clos du Fonteny, with its medicinal cherry, wild berry and spice flavors complemented by a chocolatey nuance. Nicely balanced and not at all lacking in spine. Here, too, there’s a firming touch of minerality. This wine will need several years in the cellar to unwind.
