Domaine Faiveley - Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers 2017
Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions that have been practiced for centuries within their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage, benefits from special attention which makes the cuvées unique. Each bottle therefore becomes the faithful reflection of its terroir.
Terroir: Domaine Faiveley owns a single 5.06 acre parcel of the total 25 acre Les Cazatiers vineyard. The vineyard is located high on the hillside in the northern part of the appellation bordering the equally famous 1er Cru of Clos St-Jacques. Exposure is due east with soils made up primarily of white marl (clay) and limestone gravel.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a short maceration the must undergoes primary fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and wooden vats. The young wines are aged in 70% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 16 to 18 months.
Additional Details editDeep ruby red hue with an intense and complex nose characterised by red fruits, toast and subtle roasted notes. The palate is rich and round with a firm structure and direct tannins. This remarkably powerful wine offers a silky mouthfeel and exceptional length.

"Domaine Faiveley now possess fully four hectares in this appellation, and the 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers is excellent, unfurling in the glass with aromas of small wild berries, spices, bergamot and espresso roast. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and gourmand, with velvety tannins, a plush core of succulent fruit and a long, expansive finish."
