2009 Burgundy Tasting Notes

Surprising and satisfying results from a recent blind tasting

 


« Prev Next » 9 of 10
2009 Domaine Faiveley La Combe aux Moines 1er Cru Gevrey Chambertin $70

My 1st place wine, the group’s 7th

This is sweet and fruity on the nose, but there are intensely sappy underlying notes along with plenty of sweetening wood spice and a nice pretty floral note. Rich and dense with a weighty feel reinforced by the oak here, but plenty of fresh, clean fruit and a nice bit of limestone underpinning it all. The finish shows off nice cherry pit fruit in a big, powerful style but this remains sappy, long and fresh. 92 pts

(Some might say I’m being fooled here by the new oak and modern vinification, but this is a lovely wine and it represents the 2009 vintage very well!)
