Co-Wine of the Vintage and
top Faiveley ever for the Wine Spectator:
A rich, powerful version, backed by flashy oak and beefy tannins
that sandwich the flavors of black cherry, blackberry, licorice, iron and
tobacco. Concentrated, yet vibrant and long. Best from 2024 through 2050.
red-ruby. Knockout sappy nose combines black raspberry, crushed rock and white
pepper. Boasts remarkable intensity and clarity--not to mention class--to its
flavors of raspberry, spices and pungent minerals. Wonderfully sappy and dense
but almost magically light on its feet. This sharply delineated wine finishes
with ineffable rising perfume and outstanding length. This wine manages to
combine the best traits of Faiveley's other Gevrey grand crus--not to mention
the finest qualities of the 2016 vintage--in an utterly weightless package.
This may not seem like a
“bargain” – but compared to the red Burgundies it equals or exceeds (many
selling for several thousand dollars a bottle), not to mention First Growth
Bordeaux, it clearly is.
