External Reviews for Future-Arrival Sale Domaine Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin Cote de Nuits France
Good bright dark red. Reduced rather wild aromas of cherry and mocha. Sweet and thick but a bit youthfully tart owing to firm acidity. Densely packed but disjointed today with saline soil tones dominating the middle palate. Tannins are nicely ripe though. In a reductive phase and hard to assess with accuracy Stephen Tanzers IWC.
Similar to the nose of the Combe d Orveau this is gorgeously complex though the components of it are notably different as here there is more emphasis on earth and a sauvage character to the exceptionally fresh and airy yet deeply pitched aromas. The rich intense and palate saturating flavors possess excellent volume yet fine detail as well as a driving minerality that is buffered by an abundance of dry extract that imparts a seductive character to the hugely long finish. This is a classic Combe Aux Moines that is perhaps slightly less youthfully austere than usual at this early stage. In a word terrific. - Comments: Sweet spot Outstanding. Burghound.
