Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin la Combe Aux Moines Premiere Cru 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is sweet and fruity on the nose, but there are intensely sappy underlying notes along with plenty of sweetening wood spice and a nice pretty floral note. Rich and dense with a weighty feel reinforced by the oak here, but plenty of fresh, clean fruit and a nice bit of limestone underpinning it all. The finish shows off nice cherry pit fruit in a big, powerful style but this remains sappy, long and fresh. 92 pts

Here there is much better integration of the wood with a gorgeous range or red and blue fruit aromas nuanced by game, hints of spice and underbrush that can also be found on the rich, full and generous medium plus weight flavors that possess an attra...
