Cazetiers shows red- and black-fruit aromas on the nose with layers of flowers, earth, and minerals. The wine shows firm tannins with medium weight and rich fruit flavors on the palate thanks to old vines, the oldest of which are 90-years-old. It is structured, long, and complex. The wine is a pure expression of its terroir thanks to its élevage in a combination of used oak and clay jars.
Red Burgundy might be the world's most flexible food wine. The wine's high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol, and low tannins make it very food-friendly. Red Burgundy, with its earthy and sometimes gamey character, is a classic partner to roasted game birds, grilled duck breast, and dishes that feature mushrooms, black truffles, or are rich in umami.

Ratings & Reviews
"Bright medium red. A bit more medicinal than the Goulots, offering aromas of crushed black cherry, spices and black pepper; one senses the stem influence here but Magnien made this wine with just 34% whole clusters. Smooth, pliant and fine-grained, with its dense black cherry and pepper flavors lifted by minerality. The wine's tannins dust the palate and reach the front teeth. The Goulots is easier to taste today but this wine is denser and may be longer-lived. A real mineral bath on the palate-cleansing finish." - Stephen Tanzer (Jan 2018)
90-92 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"A ripe, fresh and well-layered nose combines notes of red and black currant, plum and ample amounts of the sauvage and humus characters. The supple yet well-detailed medium weight plus flavors possess a sleek and muscular mouthfeel while delivering excellent minerality on the delicious if again not particularly complex finish. Undoubtedly more depth will develop over time but it's not clear that this will surpass the Chaffots and Sentiers." (Jan 2018)
