Olivier Bernstein Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru – 2016 – Vinous – 91-94 Points
91-94 Points points
Dark red. Highly perfumed nose combines purple fruits, animal fur, spices and musky coffee. Enters the mouth broader and sweeter than the Champeaux, then tightens up in the middle palate, showing terrific mineral spine to its flavors of medicinal red cherry, spicy oak and flowers. This seriously sappy premier cru is tough going today, with its tannins more obvious than those of the Champeaux. The yield here was just 30 hectoliters per hectare, as these vines are in the Combe Lavaux and were thus touched by the frost.
