Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 90-92 (2018 Jan.)

A markedly sauvage-inflected nose combines ultra-fresh and cool aromas of plum, violet, dark currant and plenty of earth. There is similar size, weight and muscle to the equally stony middle weight flavors that possess a chiseled, youthfully austere and beautifully persistent finish. This is even firmer though the supporting tannins are clearly ripe. Patience advised.

Vinous - Score: 90 (2019 Oct.)

The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru does not deliver the same breeding on the nose as its peers, a little smudged by comparison, although the kirsch and raspberry scents seem pure. The palate is medium-bodied with candied red fruit. Low in acidity compared to its peers, I find the finish rather leaden when I am seeking more tension and poise. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting.
