"The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru offers pastille-like raspberry and cranberry fruit on the nose, touches of mulch and oyster shell. Altogether it forms an engaging bouquet that keeps the nose in glass. The palate is framed by fine boned tannin, the acidity nicely judged. There is some vanillary new oak to be subsumed on the finish, it will ultimately turn into a gorgeous and seductive Cazetiers."

"T
he 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers was not touched by the frost according to Bruno. I could not quite get to grips with the somewhat earthy nose, just missing the brightness that I was expecting. Maybe some reduction? The palate is intense and tensile with fine-grain tannin, plenty of zinging red berry fruit and a spicy, assertive finish that is brimming full of energy. It will need five or six years in bottle but despite the reduction I can see the potential here."
