2013 Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru, pure Pinot Noir, Burgundy.
The 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Les Cazetiers of Domaine Faiveley was made from old vines of Pinot Noir. The word "cazetier" could come from "Castel", the geographical position of the village climat (land with unique combination of weather conditions and soil composition) since the vineyard is located above the Chateau de Gevrey.
This wine reveals a complex and intense nose. It gives off red berry, grilled and roasted aromas. The 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Les Cazetiers offers an ample and generous palate, with a firm texture with marked yet not bitter tannins. This strong wine offers a good structure and a persistent finish. It can be drank between 2023 and 2025.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers is darker in color than its peers and the aromatics are more broody: blackberry and dark plum, a little sullen in the context of the vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, tightly coiled and like the aromatics, it feels a little contained and takes time to unfurl, though it does with several minutes in the glass. I would wait another 3-4 years or at least give this a couple of hours decanting -- this is certainly on of the better Cazetiers in this vintage. Tasted September 2016.
