Wine Spectator | Rating: 95Blackberry and cherry, violet, mint and spice aromas and flavors signal this polished, velvety red, with dense, assertive tannins and a finish that evokes a stony, chalky impression. Best from 2021 through 2040. 222 cases imported.Author: Bruce Sanderson
Wine Advocate | Rating: 92The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers displays a touch of reduction upon opening, which dissipates with air, segueing into aromas of raw cocoa, black cherry, cassis, and an exotic floral top note of lavender. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with a velvety chassis of fine-grained tannins, an ample core of fruit and a persuasive sense of completeness. Its acids are succulent and its finish long. An excellent rendition of Faiveley's Cazetiers.Author: William Kelley
Today led by Erwan Faiveley, the Nuits-Saint-Georges-based operation is looking to expand the domaine's holdings of exceptional vineyards to ensure more control from vine to bottle across the entire portfolio. Faiveley's top wines are hand-bottled with no filtration, resulting in wines described by Clive Coates as "...supremely clean and elegant: definitive examples of Pinot Noir... above all they have richness and breed, the thumbprint of a master winemaker."
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, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
