The word "
Cazetiers" is said to come from "Castel" in the Middle Ages, from which "Castet", then "Cazetiers" was derived. The term "Castel" is indicative of the geograpical position of the climate within the village as the plot is
located above Gevrey. The soil lies on the Cretacious formation, with a large sedimentary deposit of white marl containing a large amount of shells.
The Faiveley vines are planted in 1958, 1989, 1990 and 1999. The hand-picked harvest goes through a short prefermentary maceration before being vinified. It is then matured in oak barrels which come from high-quality barrel makers and have been rigorously selected for their fine grain and light toast. With all 3 vintages featured below being rated "Sweet Spot Outstanding" by Allen Meadows and garnering his approval through compliments like "Good stuff" and "a very serious and built-to-age effort" for the 2013 and 2014 vintages respectively, it certainly isn't a difficult decision to pick up some today!
