Good attack, More drive than the Lavaux St Jacques and this is nicely loaded with plum and cherry fruit. The core has a good ripeness - but there is an edge of more crisp pep, which adds a useful lift. It has a nice juicy flow and purity of fruit, but there is an immediate pleasure here. The fruit is already so inviting it seems this is ready to go, a real pleasure to taste. It will be interesting to see how this evolves but it would seem this should be delicious drinking over the next 3-5 years while we wait for the 2015's and 2016s to mature.

Domaine Faiveley now possess fully four hectares in this appellation, and the 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers is excellent, unfurling in the glass with aromas of small wild berries, spices, bergamot and espresso roast. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and gourmand, with velvety tannins, a plush core of succulent fruit and a long, expansive finish. Rating: 91-93 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate(Jan 2019)
(from a huge 3.96 ha parcel). Here the wood regimen is no longer subtle though it stops short of masking the beautifully layered aromas of plum, spice, dark currant and freshly turned earth. The highly energetic and delineated middle weight plus flavors exude noticeable minerality on the powerful and focused finish that displays outstanding depth and persistence. Moreover, the finish really fans out as it sits on the palate. Drinking range: 2029 - Rating: 91-94 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jan 2019)
The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers comes from Faiveley’s substantial four-hectare parcel. I find this has more gumption and detail than the Lavaux Saint-Jacques at the moment. The nose features layers of blackberry, raspberry and crushed stone aromas, and the sweet, candied palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin. Blood orange and quince infuse the red fruit toward the finish. Excellent. Drinking range: 2022 - 2038 Rating: 91-93 Neal Martin, vinous.com(Jan 2019)
Lovely intensity on the nose... lots of red fruits and spice. Some higher and lower tones. This is ripe, rich and yet has a lightness and energy. There is a minerality threaded through the wine. There is excellent tension and a long and bright finish. I like the shimmer on the finish. Impressive with the sweetness of fruit wrapped around the minerality.

OFFER: All wines are offered subject to availability and final confirmation.
PRICING: All prices are quoted IN BOND ex-VAT, by the case size stated. Please double check that the desired case size does match what is being offered as wines are variously listed in threes, sixes, dozens, halves and larger formats.
DELIVERY - TIMING: This is a primeur offer so the wines are not yet physically available for delivery. They will be shipped to the UK over the next eighteen months. Generally wines are shipped to your nominated location once the whole order has landed in our London City Bond account. If you require wines to be delivered by a certain date, please advise us at the time of ordering. We do not anticipate any problems but please be aware that delays to delivery may occur should Britain's possible departure from the European Union result in additional border customs checks or other regulatory requirements. Any additional or unforeseen duties, tariffs, charges or other financial liabilities relating to 'Brexit' must be due to the customer and will be added to orders as required.

If you require wines duty paid, please indicate this in your Wishlist order form. A duty & VAT invoice will be raised once all the wines on your order are available for shipment.
