Faiveley Beaune Clos de l'Ecu Monopole Premier Cru 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

89-92 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Good bright red. Reticent aromas of dark cherry and crushed stone show a building spice character with air; less exuberant than the Champs Fulliot. Lovely definition and lift to the youthfully closed flavors of pomegranate, cherry and orange zest. Finishes firmly tannic and closed, but with excellent energy and subtle lingering perfume. These south-facing vines were picked at the beginning of the harvest. (Jan/Feb 2012)
