Average critic rating : 92.0 points



This is arguably the most sauvage wine in the 2011 range with its intensely earth-inflected, complex and layered nose of plum, floral elements and humus. There is superb intensity to the textured, mouth coating and driving medium weight plus flavors that exhibit near perfect balance on the saline, clean and austere finish. This will need at least 8 to 10 years of cellar time to sufficiently tame the firm tannins and will probably not be an '11 that will drink especially well young. Tasted: Jan 15, 2014. Drink: 2021+



Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Gevrey-Chambertin Cazetiers 2011 from Bruno Clair feels rather green on the nose at first, but with aeration it coalesces nicely and the brambly red fruit musters more intensity to counter that underripe ‘tinge’ (tinge being the appropriate word here.) The palate is marked by firm tannins, but at least there is more fruit concentration and greater depth toward the saline finish. If you can abide greenness on the nose, this is actually quite an attractive Cazetiers. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014
