2016 Henri Magnien Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers (PRE-ARRIVAL)$89.99
EFW - From the low yielding 2016 vintage this is a serious bottle of Gevrey Chambertin Premier Cru from one of the top vineyards in the village. Henri Magnien has identified a clone in his vineyards called Pinot Noir Mangien which are very old, and brings some serious, spice,complexity, and depth to the wines. The Domaine has converted over to Organic farming over the last several years which seems to have given the wines another dimension in flavor and character.

Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 93 points! From bottle, the 2016 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Les Cazetieres is performing well, bursting from the glass with a wide-open bouquet of rose petals, grilled meat and dark chocolate. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, rich and ample, with a fleshy but vibrant core, rich structuring tannins and good concentration, concluding with a mouthwatering finish. It’s a worthy successor to the excellent 2015.
