Domaine Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin les Cazetiers 2017
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Nuits|
Wine SpectatorThis red delivers pure black cherry, blackberry, vanilla, sandalwood and iron aromas and flavors on a sleek, finely wrought frame. Vibrant and long, with a precise finish. Best from 2022 through 2042. 220 cases imported.
VinousThe 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.
Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers is a little shy after its recent bottling, opening in the glass with aromas of wild berries and orange rind that are framed by a generous application of new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fine-boned and elegant, with lively acids, fine and powdery tannins and a precise finish. This is never going to challenge the lovely 2016 rendition, but by contrast, it will show all its cards with minimal bottle age.
