Winemaker Notes

Upon release, the wine is a deep red with aromas of black fruits and spices. A complex wine, very fleshy with silky tannins.

Critical Acclaim

BH 93
Burghound.com
This is quite ripe yet very fresh with its less aromatically refined and pungent nose of earth, underbrush, stone, cassis and plum. The ripeness carries over to the supporting structural elements as well as the mid-palate that is both concentrated and velvety, coating the mouth with dry extract on the superbly complex, balanced and seriously long finish. This is terrific and as I have repeatedly said with respect to Clair's 2010s, this too is textbook Cazetiers but note that it will require ample amounts of patience.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers is a deep, spherical wine endowed with tons of class and personality. Sweet floral notes meld into dark red and blue fruit in this seamless, beautifully textured Burgundy. Saline notes mark the long, polished finish.
Barrel Sample: 91-93

Bruno Clair Winery Image
Domaine Bruno Clair’s origins are Domaine Clair-Daü, one of the most celebrated domaines in Burgundy from the 1950s to the early 1970s.The domaine is 23 hectares of, well, everything: grand crus, values, rosé, geeky village level, geeky premier crus, and for a predominantly red wine estate, even some Corton-Charlemagne. There is some brilliant genetic material here too as it was from Bruno’s father (as well as from Ponsot) that the Dijon University got many of the cutting that are at the origin of today’s clones. The wines are about delicately extracted fruit on the front palate, backed by serious structure on the mid-palate. If there is one domaine in the Côte de Nuits poised to become (or re-become) a planetary rock star, given the holdings and the talent here, it is this one.

Gevrey-Chambertin Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

View all products

This small village is home to the Grands Crus in the farthest northerly stretches of Côte de Nuits and is famous for some of the deepest and firmest Burgundian Pinot Noir.

Gevrey boasts nine Grands Crus, the best of which are arguably Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. As with all of the fragmented vineyards of Burgundy, it isn’t easy to differentiate between the two, which are situated adjacent with Clos de Bèze slightly further up the hill than Le Chambertin. Clos de Bèze has a shallower soil and if you’re really counting, may produce wines less intense but more likely to charm. Some compare Le Chambertin in both power and plentitude only to the prized Romanée-Conti Grand Cru farther south in Vosne-Romanée.

Two other Grands Crus vineyards, Mazis-Chambertin (also written Mazy-) and Latricières-Chambertin command almost as much regard as Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. The upper part of Mazy, called Les Mazis Haut is the best and Latricières-Chambertin offers an abundance of juicy fruit and a silky texture in the warmer vintages.

Other Grands Crus are Ruchottes-Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin, Mazoyères-Chambertin, Griotte-Chambertin and Chapelle-Chambertin.

The most respected Pinot Noir wines from Gevrey-Chambertin are robust and powerful but at the same time, velvety and expressive: black fruit, black liquorice and chocolate come into play. After some time in the bottle, the wines are harmonious with bright and sometimes candied fruit, and aromas of musk, truffle and forest floor. These have staying power.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
