Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers 2020 - Burgundy
Bottle size: 750ml
Deep ruby red hue with an intense and complex nose characterised by red fruits, toast and subtle roasted notes. The palate is rich and round with a firm structure and direct tannins.
The term "Cazetier" originates from "Castel", the parcel situated just above the Château de
Gevrey. It is one of the rare "Têtes de Cuvée" to not have been reclassified as a Grand Cru in
the 1930's. Along with "Lavaux-Saint-Jacques" and "Clos Saint-Jacques", this climat is
considered to be one of the best Premiers Crus in Gevrey. The Domaine has owned half of
the appellation since 2013.
Soil Chalky soils with white marl sedimentary deposits
Grape Variety Pinot Noir
Tasting note: Once again there is a lovely sense of freshness to the more restrained, even brooding, dark berry fruit nose that is cut with hints of the sauvage and just turned earth. The dense, powerful and gorgeously textured larger-scaled flavors brim with both dry extract and minerality before concluding in a complex, balanced and sneaky long finale. Excellent potential here.

Bright vibrant purple, this is exuberant, wearing its heart on
its sleeve. On the richer side, I was thinking possible 14% but
Erwan confirms 13.5%. It has retained all its balance, and can
offer a very pretty long juicy cherry finish.
