About

92-95

Deeply pitched aromas of newly turned earth and animal notes characterize the brooding but notably ripe spiced plum and red berry fruit nose. The rich, full-bodied and tautly muscled flavors exhibit buckets of sappy dry extract that all but disguises the firm tannic spine on the immensely long and explosive finish. Cazetiers doesn't get a whole lot better than this.

92-95 Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media

Bright red-ruby. Ripe, wonderfully complex scents of red currant, plum, dark cherry, animal fur, minerals, and sexy oak, plus suggestions of darker berries. Round, silky, and sweet, with its full ripeness leavened by saline, soil-driven minerality. A crunchy raspberry element is nicely shaped on the finish by suave tannins. The longest of these 2015s to this point in my tasting, this wine boasts grand cru volume. Its impression of rising length reminded me a bit of the superb Chambolle-Musigny Les Fues.

This is very stretched and compressed in texture with polished tannins that pull the pretty fruit character through the wine with blueberry, cedar, and light tobacco undertones. Long and pretty. Drink in 2020.
