1990 Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru (3/30/2013)
Not promising at first due to obvious signs of past seepage. Cork stained all the way to the top. However, when poured it looked youthful with only a little bricking on the edges. The nose smelled of meat jus, forest floor, mushrooms, and a bare hint of cedar spice. On the palate dark fruit, a little bit of savory salinity, but also plenty of tannins. Tannins are a bit harsh at first but after 2 hours, really mellows out and comes together nicely.
