Faiveley Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Dames Huguettes 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

94-98 points Fine Wine Review: Finally, in a class by itself, the great Chambertin-Clos-de-Bèze is dense, pure, intense, and gamy with great length. This is a very great Clos-de-Bèze and one of the finest wines of the vintage. (Issue #130; 2011) 93-96 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): Compelling aromas of extremely fresh and airy menthol-infused red berry fruit, soil and distinctly spiced tones plus an underlying hint of animale transfers over to the rich, full and serious broad-shouldered flavors brimming with dry extract and supported by impressively refined and ripe tannins that are almost completely buffered on the powerful and balanced finish by the buckets of mid-palate sap. Terrific. Comments: Don't miss! Drink: 2026+. (Jan 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.”
