  • Introduction

    • The term “Cazetier” originates from “Castel”, the parcel situated just above the Château de Gevrey. It is one of the rare “Têtes de Cuvée” to not have been reclassified as a Grand Cru in the 1930s. Along with “Lavaux-Saint-Jacques” and “Clos Saint-Jacques”, this climat is considered to be one of the best Premiers Crus in Gevrey. The Domaine has owned half of the appellation since 2013.
