DOMAINE FAIVELEY 1er cru Les Cazetiers, Gevrey-Chambertin 2015

This wine comes from a parcel of grapes owned by Faiveley within the Les Cazetiers vineyard in the commune of Gevrey-Chambertin. The Cazetiers vineyard is north of Gevrey, high on the slopes in the middle of the main belt of 'Premier Cru' vineyards. Several parcels with vines of different ages add to the complexity of this impressive wine. Since 2007 the wine has been deliberately made in a less tannic style with more emphasis on pure fruit expression. The grapes are hand harvested and go through a short pre-fermentation maceration before being fermented in large wooden vats. After fermentation the wine is run off into 70% new fine-grained barrels for a 14 month maturation.

Mémorial de Sainte-Hélène by The Count of Las Cases

Gevrey-Chambertin is the largest wine-producing village in the entire Côte d’Or with the wines typically deeper in colour, with more tannin structure and firmer in body than most red Burgundy. Thanks to the iron-rich clay soils the very best can develop into the richest, biggest and long-lived Pinot Noir - this of course depends on whether the vineyard is located on the steeper slopes or the flatter, richer soils.

Gevrey boasts an impressive nine Grands Crus, with the name of Chambertin retaining a regal omnipresence throughout its finest vineyard names. Chambertin-Clos de Bèze which has the right to sell its wines simply as ‘Chambertin’, and is also the only wine allowed to put the ‘Chambertin’ before (rather than after its own), is considered one of the greats. Quality-wise the next best is generally acknowledged to be Mazis-Chambertin with incredibly concentrated and fine wines, but a little less firm than Le Chambertin. The tiny Griottes-Chambertin, which owes its name to the grill-pan shape of the vineyard rather than the wine’s griotte (sour) cherry aroma, is lower down the slope and boasts a velvety texture and rich fruit reminiscent of Chambertin itself. Gevrey’s largest Grand Cru, Charmes-Chambertin is pure and seductive.

The wines of Gevrey-Chambertin are deeply colored. They have intense aromas of currants and other small red and black fruits, animal notes of musk and fur, and often a touch of licorice after some bottle aging. They are powerful, with balanced tannins, a soft mouthfeel and good acidity. These are generally robust wines.
