2022 Henri Magnien Gevrey Chambertin 1er cru Cazetiers Magnum



From what one has to consider the flagship of the estate, from a massive 1ha+ parcel of vines averaging 75+ years of age. Charles in the only proprietor in Cazetiers with rows that stretch from the top to the bottom of the parcel. This is simply gorgeously complete between is broader/deeper fruit amplitude and intense floral profile, then it has the freshness effect of the Combe and light mineral sense that just keeps all of the flavors sailing on and on. This is plain gorgeous, and I have a bit more of it to spread around. Get some…..a little * awarded here.

“Bright mid purple. Served after Ruchottes because there is clearly a greater volume of fruit here, fills the mouth well, more on the raspberry side, with a little fresh white pepper behind, and medium plus depth. Does it quite have the grip of a great Cazetiers? Certainly it is a very good one. Drink from 2030-2040. Tasted: November 2023.” 93-95 Jasper Morris “Four Star” wine

“The Gevrey Cazetiers is the domaine’s top wine. The oldest vines dates back to 1915, hence a singular wine. Delicate and silky, the deep mid-palate fruit shows great energy. This has a delightful feel and remarkable tension – what a treat. The gorgeous fruit makes it a clear vin d’émotion. Drink from 2034. (2/12/24)” 95 Steen Ohman, Winehog

“The 2022 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru has the ripest and most sensual of Magnien’s cuvées on the nose, adorned with lush red cherry, raspberry and light fig scents. There’s a soupçon of exoticism in situ. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins, quite fleshy in the mouth with good grip and density. There is more horsepower even when contrasted against the Ruchottes-Chambertin. Lingers wonderfully on the finish. Excellent.” 93-95 Neil Martin

“(from a large 1.48 ha holding with vines that run from the bottom to the top of the vineyard). Whiffs of wood, forest floor, the sauvage and crushed fennel add breadth to the aromas of wild red berries, plum and violet. The round and fleshy, even plush, medium-bodied flavors possess an equally lovely texture if perhaps not quite the pungent minerality on the powerful, tautly muscular and beautifully persistent finish that also displays a touch of warmth. This beauty is built to reward longer-term keeping so at least moderate patience will be necessary. (91-94)/2034+” Allen Meadows ————> thingy, meaning, “particularly outstanding for their respective appellations and especially merit your attention”

“The 2022 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers offers up pretty aromas of cherries and raspberries mingled with spices, peonies and orange zest. Medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny, it’s charming and sensual, with excellent depth of fruit, supple tannins and a saline finish.” 92-94 William Kelley
