Bright, full red. Ripe but cool scents of dark raspberry, spices, minerals and bitter chocolate. Densely packed and very intense, conveying a subtle sweetness to its dark berry, mineral and spice flavors. Finishes very long and gripping, with suave tannins arriving late. With its energy and minerality, this beauty really resounds on the back end and perks up the taste buds. Jadot’s vines are in the middle of the slope, which Barnier described as "not the most calcaire section of Cazetiers."

The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers has a detailed and expressive bouquet with a convincing sous-bois infused bouquet that gains intensity in the glass, plenty of detailed red berry fruit blossoming with aeration. The palate is detailed and precise with crisp acidity, maybe compact at the moment, yet the delineation on the finish is very commendable. I hope by bottling there is just a little more persistence on the aftertaste.
