Good color but not deep; transparent. A ripe nose of or- ange and caramel and on the palate, too, along with men- thol and toasty peanut. Very classy, all in finesse. It has sneaky tannins and long-lasting, mouth-watering fruit. Expansive peanut raisined fruit on the finish.

Wine AdvocateThere was extreme millerandage in the fruit from which is 2006 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers was derived, notes Bruno Clair, and yet the finished wine weighs in at under 13% alcohol. Bittersweet cassis and blueberry fruit - with a high-toned, berry and herb distillate-like shadow to its fresh fruit - are refreshingly juicy and transparent to underlying chalk and stone nuances. This is leaner and lacks the striking perfume of the Fonteny, but nonetheless impressive, and likely to reward repeated tasting over the next 8-10 years.

Wine SpectatorThis chewy red is full of woodsy, briary notes, with hints of blackberry and licorice. It's backed by dense, grainy tannins that need a year or so to soften. Best from 2010 through 2018. 50 cases imported.
