Domaine Faiveley Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru les Porets St.-Georges 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

92-95 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Good dark red. Reserved nose hints at kirsch, violet, minerals and licorice, all lifted by a whiff of blood orange. Perfumed, pure and wonderfully sweet, with a smooth texture enlivened by superb acidity. This has grand cru texture and mouth coverage. Finishes saline and extremely long, with terrific fruit intensity. A wonderfully vibrant 2009 in the making. (Jan/Feb 2011)

Moderate floral notes add breadth to the very fresh and earthy red currant and plum aromas that lead to precise, vibrant and attractively transparent medium-bodied flavors that are complex, serious and persistent. This is a classic Nuits with fine balance.

Red-ruby. Very ripe aromas of cassis, licorice and flowers enlivened by cooler crushed stone and mineral notes. Sweet, suave and fine-grained; primary, juicy and densely packed. Finishes with substantial but refined tannins and excellent length. Very promising. Hervet noted that Faiveley vinified most of the 2009s with about 25% whole clusters with the objective of “civilizing the tannins.”
