This is the most northerly of the three Côte Saint Jacques vineyards owned by the domaine. Les Cazetiers is certainly one of the most fascinating First Growths of the Côte de Nuits, and the Magnien family is understandably proud of their substantial 1.5 hectare holding. They own plots on all four of the different soil types which are to be found here, from their home at the foot of the vineyard, all the way to the top, where the trees begin. Deep, rich purple in colour, with charming aromas, including violet, this shows striking structure and immense fruit density. 25% whole bunches were retained for the fermentation, and the wine has been ageing 50% in new barrels. Palate has power, roundness and sustained, richly tannic aftertaste, without harshness. This is a superb wine for mid- and long-term keeping (for drinking 2024-2038+).
