Latricieres Chambertin Faiveley 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

93-96 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "A ripe yet airy and cool nose offers up aromas of essence of red and dark raspberry with plenty of floral influence along with subtle spice, earth and herbal tea nuances. There is terrific concentration to the rich and remarkably concentrated medium weight plus flavors that brim with both minerality and sappy dry extract, all wrapped in a saline, balanced and highly persistent finish that just doesn't stop. I often have a very small preference for the Mazis chez Faiveley but in 2015 the Latricières may very well better it." 1/17 93-96 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Healthy dark red-ruby. Captivating exotic spices currently dominate the nose. Plush, saline, soil-driven wine, offering a rare balance of sheer layered ripeness and pronounced minerality. This big boy is more savory than sweet, and its substantial ripe tannins are totally buffered by mid-palate stuffing. Erwan Faiveley described this wine as his favorite of the vintage, while technical directlor Jerome Flous called it his "desert island wine." This cool site has clearly benefited from the extra density brought by the conditions of 2015." 1/17

Much more open than I expected for a '93. Everything about this wine was about the energy- the nose jumped out of the glass- the attack on the palate was focused and intense- terrific core of acid and fruit wrapped in perfect balance. will age effortlessly.

decanted for about 1/2 hour. incredibly dark, with virtually no bricking. Old-school burgundy funk and iron dominate the nose with hints of rosemary. The palate has a sense of cool minerals and iron- almost like cold steel with significant weight on the mid-palate wrapped by dark fruits. This got better as the night went on as it added more weight and complexity. terrific wine.
