2017 Domaine Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin Premier Cru Les Cazetiers
The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers comes from Faiveley’s substantial four-hectare parcel. I find this has more gumption and detail than the Lavaux Saint-Jacques at the moment. The nose features layers of blackberry, raspberry and crushed stone aromas, and the sweet, candied palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin. Blood orange and quince infuse the red fruit toward the finish. Excellent. Drink 2022 - 2038.
Neal Martin - Vinous
Here the wood regimen is no longer subtle though it stops short of masking the beautifully layered aromas of plum, spice, dark currant and freshly turned earth. The highly energetic and delineated middle weight plus flavors exude noticeable minerality on the powerful and focused finish that displays outstanding depth and persistence. Moreover, the finish really fans out as it sits on the palate. Drink 2029+.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
Concentrated powerful purple, with significant intensity on the nose. Very slightly vegetal, but there is a sumptuous richness of fruit behind, though remaining quite fluid in style.
