The quality of this wine has skyrocketed over the past few vintages; while it was always very good, it has now become one of the most consistent performers in the Faiveley portfolio. There is quite a bit of wood influence at present and it fights a bit with the spicy dark berry fruit aromas that exhibit plenty of earth and game character. The impressively scaled and concentrated broad-shouldered flavors possess an opulent yet entirely serious mouth feel before culminating in a balanced, explosively and tremendously persistent finish. This is a bit woody today yet the underlying material is such that it seems all but evident that it will successfully integrate the oak in time. Range: 93-95
Plenty of resinous oak coats this red, leaving a veneer on the cherry and berry flavors. Compact, with a layer of dusty cannons on the finish. With air, the oak subsides, revealing pretty cherry, floral and spice notes, making this more elegant. Best from 2019-2033.
One of the largest and most respected producers in Burgundy, Faiveley is now on its seventh generation and is still growing. Known for consistent quality and its huge range of appellations, this family company has it all. With each new generation comes a difference in wine making style but critical acclaim is always the same. White or red, estate or negociant, Faiveley is a winner.
