The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru has a veneer of new oak on the nose plus some reduction, but there seems to be plenty of red fruit here—it’s just suppressed under that reductive haze at the moment. The palate is clean and fresh with fine tannins, a silver bead of acidity and touches of allspice and black pepper that furnish a relatively complex and engaging finish. Persistent. This is a finely-crafted Les Cazetiers. Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2027-2050
