Clos des Issarts is a Faiveley monopole, well-placed next to the higher part of Ruchottes-Chambertin on two separate terraces. It's another impressive 2017 from a cooler premier cru, with subtle reduction, some underlying grip and lots of scented red cherry and pomegranate fruit complemented by 40% new wood. Drinking Window 2025 - 2030. (TA)
The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos des Issarts 1er Cru is a 0.5-hectare monopole adjacent to the Clos de Ruchottes from Rousseau. The most sensual of Faiveley’s Gevrey Premier Crus, it has a seductive bouquet of pure raspberry, cranberry and rose petal scents. The well balanced palate displays supple tannin, pretty red cherries, crushed strawberry and hints of fig jam toward the detailed finish. This is a gorgeous 2017 that is going to be irresistible once in bottle.(NM)
This too is aromatically reserved with its airy aromas of violet, plum and earth that are trimmed in soft wood. Once again there is a sleek mouthfeel to the delicious and energetic medium weight flavors that are equally well-balanced and solidly persistent if perhaps not quite as complex. This is a Gevrey 1er of finesse in 2017.
