    Good deep red. Highly perfumed nose melds blueberry, crushed stone and a whiff of game. Juicy, precise and vibrant on the palate, with an extremely primary character to the dark fruit and spice flavors. Really outstanding energy here. Shows superb floral persistence on the very long, rising, palate-saturating finish.

    The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers has a more rounded, fuller bouquet than the Les Champeaux, leaning more to red berry fruit than black. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy, generous opening counterbalanced by a crisp line of acidity. Nicely focused with a nonchalant but flavorsome finish, this is a fine Gevrey with good breeding.

  • Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
