2009 Domaine Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers (Pre-Arrival)
A seductive style, with sweet spice, sandalwood, floral and cherry aromas and flavors allied to a silky texture. It's all beautifully balanced and ends with refined, integrated tannins for focus. Excellent length and freshness. Best from 2014 through 2030.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
A wonderfully complex and quite densely fruited nose features notably ripe and layered aromas of red, blue and black fruits that include ample amounts of stone, game and earth nuances, all trimmed in soft wood hints. The supple, round and seductive yet entirely serious flavors display an abundance of dry extract on the strikingly long finish. I very much like the sophisticated mouth feel as well as both the freshness and vivacity, particularly in the context of the vintage. In sum, a Cazetiers that allies power with finesse. Drink 2021+.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Deep red. Sappy aromas of crushed dark fruits, wild herbs, spices and earth. Dense, spicy and saline, conveying a lush, rich texture accompanied by excellent verve. Finishes broad, ripe and long, with a subtle saline quality.
*Cellar Selection* There is a lot of power in this wine. It has great weight and richness and an intense structure. Hanging from the frame of the wine are dark plum fruits, layers of wood, sweet spice, complex acidity and dry tannins. Age for 6-7 years.
