Domaine Faiveley Clos de Vougeot 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

92-94 points and 'Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): (blended from 3 separate parcels). An attractively complex and unusually refined nose speaks of red currant, kirsch, soft earth and a hint of wood spice. There is a refined mouth feel to the larger-scaled flavors thanks to the fine grain of the ripe and well-integrated tannins on the mildly austere and impressively long, indeed even explosive finish. This is terrific and the backend offers the same excellent depth the nose promises. Lovely stuff. Drink: 2026+. (Jan 2013)
