2015 Grand Cru Faiveley Burgundy

2015 Faiveley Grand Cru Burgundy
Having the opportunity to taste with Erwan Faiveley is always a highlight, being able to taste the 2015 Faiveley Grand Cru Reds with Erwan is a dream come true. As with most Grand Cru Burgundies these are in short in quantity but the quality is amazing.

2015 Domaine Faiveley Corton Clos du Corton....$242.99
Saturated dark red-ruby. Distinctly dark aromas of black cherry, licorice and violet convey an impression of medicinal reserve. Powerful black cherry, crunchy raspberry and licorice flavors boast remarkable intensity and energy but come across as less austere at this stage than normal. A huge wine with the structure for a 25-year evolution in bottle but there's something almost feminine about its fine-grained texture.
Rated 95-97/100 Vinous

Rated 94-96/100 Burghound

2015 Domaine Faiveley Chambertin Clos de Beze...$399.99
Discreet but not invisible wood serves as a backdrop for the airy, ripe and very pure red and dark cherry, earth and wonderfully broad-ranging spice notes. There is terrific punch to the big, robust, tautly structured and well-muscled flavors that ooze with minerality and buckets of mid-palate sap that buffers the prominent tannic spine on the youthfully austere finish. This massively long effort should age glacially but gracefully for several decades.

2015 Domaine Faiveley Latricieres Chambertin...$272.99
A ripe yet airy and cool nose offers up aromas of essence of red and dark raspberry with plenty of floral influence along with subtle spice, earth and herbal tea nuances. There is terrific concentration to the rich and remarkably concentrated medium weight plus flavors that brim with both minerality and sappy dry extract, all wrapped in a saline, balanced and highly persistent finish that just doesn't stop. I often have a very small preference for the Mazis chez Faiveley but in 2015 the Latricières may very well better it.
