"Surpassing my recollection of it from barrel, this is an unequivocally superb Cazetiers." William Kelley, Wine Advocate
 
Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers in one of our favourite Premier Crus.
 
The vineyard is located high on the upper slopes of Gevrey-Chambertin beside Clos St Jacques. The vineyard faces due east and the soil is full of small stones which aid drainage and reflect heat.
 
After Clos St Jacques, Les Cazetiers is considered the most interesting vineyard of this Cote producing fine, elegant wines that age extremely well. Jasper Morris MW says "Cazetiers gives a feeling of refinement and precision which has an intellectual appeal as well as being vinously satisfying".
Today we feature the outstanding 2016 from Domaine Faiveley. The wine has exceptional reviews from the major critics. It is a Premier Cru worth popping a 6-Pack in the cellar.

William Kelley, Wine Advocate: From bottle, Faiveley's 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers is showing very well indeed, unwinding in the glass with aromas of blackberries, cassis, dark chocolate, grilled game, bergamot and warm spices. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, textural but full of energy, with a gourmand core of succulent, sapid fruit that cloaks its rich, satiny tannins, concluding with a long, subtly carnal finish. Surpassing my recollection of it from barrel, this is an unequivocally superb Cazetiers. 94 Points

Neal Martin, Vinous:The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru is noticeably deeper in colour than its peers. It has quite a high-toned bouquet, more ostentatious than I expect with appealing scents of boysenberry, cassis and violet. I would like to see more Cazetiers character develop. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry. Fresh and slightly chalky towards the finish that seems to belong to a different wine insofar that it feels austere and tannic. Is that an omen? It is a Gevrey-Chambertin that is indecisive about its future but my optimism is reflected in my score. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. (Drink between 2022-2042). 94 Points

Wine Spectator: An earthy, smoky note leads off, underscored by black currant, blackberry, violet and graphite flavors. Supple, yet dense, with a firm grip on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2042. 94 Points

Burghound: Reduction and wood currently overshadow the underlying fruit. There is first-rate intensity and power to the concentrated broad-shouldered flavors that possess a velvet-textured mid-palate while delivering outstanding length on the balanced and only mildly rustic finale. If this can add even more depth it could very well merit the upper end of my predicted range. In sum, this is a classic example and as such, it's very much destined for a long snooze in a cold cellar. (Drink starting 2033). 92-94 Points

Rousseau Chambertin 2004
Domaine Armand Rousseau Chambertin Grand Cru 2004
1 only
 
From the private cellar of one of our clients we are delighted to offer a superb bottle of Rousseau Chambertin Grand Cru 2004.
 
John Gilman, View From the Cellar: The Chambertin, described by Madame Rousseau as "imperturbable" for its ability to always negotiate well the vagaries of each vintage, is again aristocratic and fine in 2004. The bouquet offers up a fine mélange of black cherries, plums, grilled meats, mustard seed, deep Gevrey minerality, cocoa powder, toasty oak and a distinct topnote of violets. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and beautifully balanced, with a rock solid core of fruit, perfect focus, and a very long, tangy and ripely tannic finish. This too has just a whiff of pepper on the finish, but I would be surprised if this is just not a youthful attribute of the wine. (Drink between 2015-2050). 94-95 Points
 
Burghound: The difference between Chambertin and Clos de Bèze is sharply etched in 2004 as this is cooler, bigger, richer and more powerful though less elegant and with a more limited range of spices specifically and aromatic breadth in general. The medium full flavors are reserved, tight, precise and very pure with extraordinarily good punch and precision, all wrapped in a firm, dusty and linear finish. I particularly like the mouth coating quality of the flavors as there is ample dry extract here, which serves to perfectly buffer the firmly tannic spine. Outstanding stuff and while not a truly great Rousseau Chambertin, it's knocking on the door. (Drink starting 2014). 93 Points
