Latricieres Chambertin Faiveley 92-94nm Premier 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Good bright red. Noble, airy aromas of piquant pomegranate, smoky minerality, white pepper and leather. Densely packed and folded in on itself; like a black hole in the mouth. Great verve and energy to the saline and crushed stone flavors. Uncoils slowly with aeration, with the finish displaying almost painful intensity and terrific mounting floral length. A great soil-driven Latricieres in the making...93-96" IWC 1/12 "This offers up a completely different aromatic profile than that of the Mazis with its extremely cool, restrained and ultra-elegant nose of a broad range of wild red berry fruits, stone, floral notes and spice hints. There is exceptionally good purity and transparency to the intensely mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that evidence ample power on the impeccably well-balanced and linear finish. This is a really lovely effort that embodies that ineffable quality of power without weight...93-95" BH 1/12 "The Latricières Chambertin has a very composed bouquet: quite earthy with touches of oyster shell. Indeed, that estuarine quality comes through on the palate. Fine tannins, a little introverted but you want to delve in and see what becomes of this wine. Alluring! ...92-94" Neil Martin's Wine Journal - WA 11/12
