Faiveley Côte de Beaune Villages 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions that have been practiced for centuries within their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage, benefits from special attention which makes the cuvées unique. Each bottle therefore becomes the faithful reflection of its terroir. The Domaine Faiveley Vosne Romanee AC is sourced from multiple plots throughout the appellation. Soils are primarily chalky marl and exposure is east/ southeast. Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a 18-20 day maceration the must undergoes primary fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and wooden vats followed by blending of the cuvees. The young wines are aged in 30% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 14 to 16 months." -Importer

still very fresh, from memory a bit low amplitude but with excellent balance an breadth. Would be lovely with some cheese, nicely sweet without being at all cloying and acidity showing great integration.

Nice ruby color, aroma subtle, cherry, very very subdued aroma - includes, some faint leather/earth notes... Flavor - nice pinot notes, raspberry, blueberry, cherry, leather, earth, tobacco, long finish, fairly acidic still... Had with pasta and veal parmagiano (very very very good food match) complemented the mozzorella cheese extremely well...all in all a good Burgundy (I paid $24 for it a little over a year ago) Stored in cellar temp controlled (58 - 62 deg F) not moved for 3 months I would rate this wine a 93 , excellent stylistically, price wise, and complex, I enjoy complex wines, even ones which may be very subtle, as many Burgundies are. Mercurey is not my favorite AOC in Burgundy but htis is a good, affordable example.

A tremendous achievement. A wonderful balance of honeysuckle, orange zest, and raw honey with a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg spice on the finish. Opulent and well structured, with trendous mouthfeel that is lithe yet well rounded. Sublime.

100% semillon. Aged in a mix of one-third new 1-year and 2-year old barrels. Climens does not present classic barrel samples as the final assemblage is yet to be determined. But we did taste a number of parcels six samples representing six different tries or harvest days directly from barrel. Each portion highlighted a different profile ranging from clean bright and fresh to richer and more textured. 1 - Sept. 8: Exotic and ripe tropical notes with an emphasis on elegance and freshness. Pure and vibrant. 2 - Sept. 12: Showing more depth concentration and richness verging on honey with more noticeable spice. 3 - Sept. 15: Hitting more marmalade and citrus rind flavors with moderate weight spice and fresh acidity. 4 - Sept. 18: Represents 40% of the harvest. A deeper gold color than earlier samples showing lots of spice and honey with vibrant citrus and mineral characters and a slightly fat and nutty element. Superb complexity. 5 -Sept. 21: Brilliant yellow gold color. Marzipan and orange rind. Mouthwatering really rich and buttery with coconut crhme and lemon curd flavors. 6 - Sept. 28: Returning to a leaner profile and more citrus elements plus clementine floral and vanilla bean flavors all while showing a rich nutty character that expresses bright citrus and mineral notes. Symmetry on all levels with not one sample evidently out of proportion or balance. One can only imagine the potential of the final blend but based on these samples this promises to be a truly outstanding wine that will last for decades to come. Geoffrey Binder.

Attractive nose with hazelnuts vanilla and apricot. Lots of dried orange peel and honey in this excellent sweet wine. Dense and very sweet on the palate with bright acidity and wonderful purity of fruit. Soft well-balanced and very elegant long finish. Medium sweetness. Intense botrytis spice on finish. Better in 2016. James Suckling.

Berenice Lurton and her team managed to pick the crop just hours before rains fell on October 23. Tasting through every one of their lots in 2010 there was a theme of tautness racy acidity and spice. Focusing upon two batches representing about 14% of the harvest there was patently exquisite balance and a sense of concentrated but efficient power counterbalanced by immense purity and effervescence. Their problem will be knowing exactly which lots to deselect! -Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine

100% semillon. Aged in 35% new oak.Vibrant yellow/straw hue. This was hands down the most backwards closed wine of the tasting. Completely unyielding at first requiring sometime in the glass to finally shed its inner beauty. True to Climens style this is promising to be a wine for the annals. It is ripe and tropical yet beautifully spiced. So much tension on the palate with bucket-loads of vibrant acids. The fruit is compact yet ethereal with an abundance of floral notes and ripe yellow s
