Barrel sample. Mid crimson. Sweet dark-red fruit with some peppery oak spice (approximately 50% new and 50% two-year-old barrels for all the Faiveley premier cru reds). More savoury on the palate. One of the least charming wines at this stage but also one of the most refined in structure. The extraction of the tannins is so well judged to match the hidden but present fruit. (JH)

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.
