Faiveley Latricières-Chambertin 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Family owned for 7 generations, Faiveley has an awesome selection of vineyards in pretty much all areas of Burgundy. Their traditional strengths are in the Cotes de Nuits and Mercurey however recent purchases in the Cotes de Beaune have widened their appeal. 80% of their grape requirements are sourced from their own vineyards.The 'Latricières Chambertin' is matured in oak barrels for 16 to 18 months, in nineteenth century vaulted cellars which provide ideal conditions for raising wines. The barrels come from high-quality barrel makers and have been rigorously selected for their fine grain and light toast. This wine has a generous and complex nose, divulges rich aromas of roasting and spices. On the palate, it opens with ripe and silky tannins, before showing its strength and its beautiful structure.
