Reduction dominates the nose at present. Otherwise the meaty, detailed, intense and naturally sweet middle weight plus flavors possess enough punch and minerality to really make a statement on the explosive, sappy and beautifully persistent finish. This is a classically styled Caz that is also built-to-age. Drink 2026+

(50% new oak): Bright full red. Aromatic scents of red cherry, raspberry and minerals. A step up in clarity and inner-mouth perfume from the Morey premier crus, with a restrained sweetness and fresh framing acidity to its red fruit and rose petal flavors. This sappy, firmly structured wine shows very suave tannins and its rising, sharply delineated finish really perks up the salivary glands.
The greatest village in terms of notable grand cru vineyards, Gevrey Chambertin has no less than 9 of them including its most famous Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze, and includes a premier cru vineyard that many people deem grand cru in quality - Clos St. Jacques. It encompasses approximately 400 hectares under vine also making it the largest top quality vineyard area in the Côte de Nuits. Gevrey-Chambertin has many followers who seek out its deeply coloured, robust and textured wines. They are often firmer than the neighbouring appellations of Chambolle Musigny and Vosne Romanée and can take several years to soften once released. Due to its size and reputation, the list of excellent producers is noteworthy and many are worth seeking out.
