A simply gorgeous red pinot fruit nose of remarkable purity also features nuances of game earth stone and a hint of just turned compost leads to rich full and serious medium plus bodied flavors that offer fine detail... A simply gorgeous red pinot fruit nose of remarkable purity also features nuances of game earth stone and a hint of just turned compost leads to rich full and serious medium plus bodied flavors that offer fine detail excellent power and outstanding length. This is a robust effort and more in keeping with a classically styled Cazetiers as there is plenty of muscle here. In a word lovely.

There was extreme millerandage in the fruit from which is 2006 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers was derived notes Bruno Clair and yet the finished wine weighs in at under 13% alcohol. Bittersweet cassis and blueberry fruit... There was extreme millerandage in the fruit from which is 2006 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers was derived notes Bruno Clair and yet the finished wine weighs in at under 13% alcohol. Bittersweet cassis and blueberry fruit - with a high-toned berry and herb distillate-like shadow to its fresh fruit - are refreshingly juicy and transparent to underlying chalk and stone nuances. This is leaner and lacks the striking perfume of the Fonteny but nonetheless impressive and likely to reward repeated tasting over the next 8-10 years.

Good full red. Ripe aromas of plum red cherry spices and smoke. Supple and stuffed with fruit; broad and substantial without coming across as weighty. A lovely midweight Gevrey with very good depth to its red fruit iron... Good full red. Ripe aromas of plum red cherry spices and smoke. Supple and stuffed with fruit; broad and substantial without coming across as weighty. A lovely midweight Gevrey with very good depth to its red fruit iron and tobacco flavors. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and very good length. This one will require four or five years of bottle aging. The Cazetiers hillside had the best-looking grapes in '06 noted Clair who added that this wine is virtually always the highest in pH in the cellar-in this case 3.66.

This chewy red is full of woodsy briary notes with hints of blackberry and licorice. It's backed by dense grainy tannins that need a year or so to soften. Best from 2010 through 2018. 50 cases imported. -BS
