Chambolle Musigny les Fuees Faiveley 91 Jg 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Here the nose is more deeply pitched compared to that of the La Combe d'Orveau with ripe yet cool red berry liqueur, earth and wet stone aromas. There is outstanding delineation to the more powerful, intense and mineral-inflected flavors where the firm but ripe tannins are almost completely buffered by the copious dry extract that really coats the palate on the balanced and strikingly persistent finish. I very much like this...91-93" BH 1/12 "The 2010 Faiveley Chambolle-Musigny “les Fuées” is also a very good wine in the making that saw plenty of new wood. The deep and classy nose offers up an excellent mélange of red and black cherries, gamebirds, woodsmoke, fine soil tones, fresh herbs and spicy, cedary new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and impressively sappy on the attack, with very good focus and nascent complexity, tangy acids and a long, slightly woody finish of ripe tannins. Again, my score may prove to be a tad on the conservative side once this wine fully comes back from the mise, but both of these fine Chambolles would have been much more interesting to my palate with a lower percentage of new wood used in the elevage...91+?"
