Gallois Gevrey Chambertin les Petits Cazetiers 1er Cru 2018 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
The climat “Petits Cazetiers” is in the natural prolongation of les Cazetiers and at the bottom of the Combe aux Moines, on marl-limestone. It is facing due east and particularly well protected from bad weather.
It is small in size but great in its rarity and its aromatic quality. Without being sole owners of a monopole, we are the only ones to feature this appellation.
The vines were planted in 1954.
Annual production touches on 1100 bottles.
Tasting note: Ripe and pretty aromas are comprised of poached plum, dark raspberry, game and discreet earth nuances. The succulent, round and generous medium-bodied flavors possess very good power and punch on the robust finale that is impressively complex, palate coating and persistent. This moderately austere, dusty and serious effort will require extended patience as it's presently very firm. Outstanding. Allen Meadows, Burghound
