Earthy red berry fruit aromas trimmed in a discreet touch of wood spice are laced with earth, forest floor and violet hints. The full-bodied and tautly muscled broad-shouldered flavors possess excellent power and detail on the stunningly long, mildly rustic and youthfully austere finish. This is quite serious and clearly very structured yet it stops short of being overtly old school in style; that said, this will not be an early drinker.
The aromas are of very subtle gun metal, dark berries and flowers. Full-bodied, dense and silky with a minerally undertone and hints of salt. Long and beautiful. Crunch acidity. Drink in 2021. Clos de Vougeot from Faiveley excells in hot and dry years like this.
(Faiveley has one parcel in the middle of the Clos and two at the bottom): Bright red with ruby tones. Pungent aromas of black cherry, crushed strawberry, licorice and flowers complicated by a hint of menthol minerality. A dense fruit bomb on the palate, with its strawberry and cherry flavors given grip and lift on the back end by substantial dusty tannins, which are not yet as well integrated as those of the Echézeaux. Not at all a high-pH style of Clos Vougeot in spite of its lingering salty character. Erwan Faiveley described 2015 as a great vintage for Clos Vougeot, adding that 2014 was also very good. But many of their vines in this grand cru were burned by the late-April frost in 2016, he added.
