Faiveley Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

92-95 points and 'Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): (blended from 3 separate parcels). There is enough reduction present to suppress the underlying fruit. On the plus side there is a lovely sense of tension to the very fresh, focused and overtly powerful big-bodied flavors that possess both first-class volume and precision, all wrapped in a youthfully austere and explosively long finale. The tannins are relatively fine-grained for the appellation but note well that this is a take-no-prisoners example and as such it would be pointless to open a bottle before its 10th birthday. Drink: 2031+. (Jan 2016)

Good dark red. Complex nose combines red fruits, wild herbs, spices and mint. Tight and penetrating on the palate; much less expressive today than the Echezeaux but dense, pure, vibrant and delineated. Showed increasing minerality with aeration but this very closed wine will need extended bottle aging to gain in pliancy. Finishes long and stylish.

Deep ruby-red. Tight nose hints at black cherry, violet, licorice, fresh herbs and mint; very Clos Vougeot. Creamy on entry, then quite primary and youthful in the middle, with very good density but a youthful toughness. Quite bright and delineated f... Stephen Tanzer. A Pinot Noir wine from Burgundy in France. 2003 Faiveley Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 750ml
