Chambolle Musigny Premier Cru Aux Beaux Bruns Domaine Faiveley 2011

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions that have been practiced for centuries within their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage, benefits from special attention which makes the cuvées unique. Each bottle therefore becomes the faithful reflection of its terroir. This wine is from the Premier Cru Aux Beaux Bruns which sits in the northern portion of the appellation, on the lower slopes of the hillside directly adjacent to Aux Echanges. Domaine Faiveley's small parcel sits with a slight south/southeast exposure and stony, shallow limestone soils. Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the Domaine. Following a 18-20 day maceration the must undergoes primary fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and wooden vats. The young wines are aged in 70% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 14 to 16 months. Wine Spectator scored this 92 points saying "This is lean and on the tight side, with firm tannins underlining the currant and cranberry fruit. Blossoms after a few hours in the glass, turning more supple and generous, though not opulent. Fine length. Best from 2015 through 2021." Limited!
