Domaine Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin 1er ‘Cazetiers’ 2010

Pinot Noir from France - Burgandy
Review Date : 01-Aug-2012
A major vineyard owner with 120 ha of plantings, Erwan Faiveley introducing a more accessible style since his control of the company. Faiveley owns 2.05 ha of this 9.12 ha site. Aged in barrel 16-18 months. Approx. 660 dozen produced. Dark ruby-red colour, the bouquet is firm and tightly bound, well-packed with dense dark berry fruits and well-balanced oak spicing. Some savoury, earthy nuances emerge from the primary fruit characters. Medium to full-bodied, this features lush and succulent ripe dark berry fruit flavours, already quite approachable, the structure subtly in support. The mouthfeel is sweetly rich and juicy with suppleness, the tannins very fine and quite restrained. This has good drive and a core that smoothly blossoms, resulting in a rich, accessible elegance of style. Oaking is spot-on, and delicate savoury iron and game nuances show on the finish. This is a fresh, modern take on Gevrey-Chambertin that has real richness, and will drink well over the next 10 years. 19.0/20 Jul 2012 RRP $154.99
