Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Cazetiers (0.75 L)
BH: An intensely earthy and sauvage dominated nose combines notes of both red and dark berries along with floral hints. There is a seductive, even velvety mouth feel to the very rich, round and delicious middle weight flavors that are underpinned by dusty tannins on the well-balanced and persistent finish that displays less austerity than usual. This mineral-driven effort should also be approachable on the younger side but don’t let the velvety mid-palate fool you as this is clearly built to reward medium to even longer-term cellaring.
