Domaine Faiveley Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The monks of Cîteaux created this clos, with the last acquisition dating back to 1336, however, the surrounding wall was probably built in the 15th century. The Pinot Noir vines currently used were planted in 1940, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1980 and 1981 in the shallow soil. Hand-harvested, and aged for 16-18 months in oak barrels in nineteenth century vaulted cellars, this red Burgundy is a dark ruby in color and offers complex aromas of flowers, fruit and oak on the nose. On the palate, round, fleshy mouthfeel with excellent structure and a long finish. Pairs well with red meats, game and soft cheeses.

Vintage: 2009 03/15/2012

Good dark red. Complex nose combines red fruits, wild herbs, spices and mint. Tight and penetrating on the palate; much less expressive today than the Echezeaux but dense, pure, vibrant and delineated. Showed increasing minerality with aeration but this very closed wine will need extended bottle aging to gain in pliancy. Finishes long and stylish. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jan/Feb 2011, Stephen Tanzer

Deep ruby-red. Tight nose hints at black cherry, violet, licorice, fresh herbs and mint; very Clos Vougeot. Creamy on entry, then quite primary and youthful in the middle, with very good density but a youthful toughness. Quite bright and delineated f... Stephen Tanzer. A Pinot Noir wine from Burgundy in France. 2003 Faiveley Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 750ml
