Faiveley Beaune Clos de l'Ecu 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"(Note - there are two sub-climats: A l’Ecu and the 2.39 ha Clos de l’Ecu, also seen spelled Clos l’Écu in some reference texts. The Clos de l’Ecu is now a monopole of Domaine Faiveley). An extremely pretty and distinctly fresh nose speaks of red pinot fruit and subtle spice notes that precede the round, soft and quite supple flavors that are very Beaune as there is a distinct fruit component as well as a generous mouth feel. The finish however firms up quickly and I like the sneaky complexity that reveals itself just at the end of the aftertaste. This is not an especially sophisticated wine but it’s lovely all the same. 90" BH 1/11
