Faiveley Clos de Vougeot 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

92-95 points and 'Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): (blended from 3 separate parcels). There is enough reduction present to suppress the underlying fruit. On the plus side there is a lovely sense of tension to the very fresh, focused and overtly powerful big-bodied flavors that possess both first-class volume and precision, all wrapped in a youthfully austere and explosively long finale. The tannins are relatively fine-grained for the appellation but note well that this is a take-no-prisoners example and as such it would be pointless to open a bottle before its 10th birthday. Drink: 2031+. (Jan 2016)
