Deep ruby red hue with an intense and complex nose characterized by red fruits, toast and subtle roasted notes. The palate is rich and round with a firm structure and direct tannins. This remarkably powerful wine offers a silky mouthfeel and exceptional length. Serve with duck breast with blackcurrant, rabbit and prune stew. Cellaring Potential: 15 to 20 years.
94 Points - James Suckling
Tantalizing aromas of ripe strawberries, violets and cherries with some light bark. Medium-to full-bodied with firm, very silky tannins that are extremely polished and fine. Love the balance and focus to this. Try after 2022.
94 Points - Wine Spectator
Charming and classy, this red is lush and saturated with black cherry, blackberry, earth and a hint of tobacco flavours. It's balanced, turning firmer mid-palate, with powdery tannins lining the tangy finish. An accent of iron creeps in at the end. Best from 2024 through 2042.
94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Mingling aromas of sweet wild berries with rich bass notes of forest floor, spice and grilled squab, the 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers is medium to full-bodied, broad and concentrated, with rich structuring tannins, comparatively low acidity and a long, sapid finish.
