This generous although also complex wine brings in many elements. With lush tannins and concentrated acidity it has a dry, still very young character. The weight of juicy fruit suggests a future that is rich and for the long-term. Drink from 2025.
Extremely rich and opulent aromas with blueberries, orange peel and peach seeds. Flowers, too. Full and round, offering up rich tannins and a flavorful finish. Very persistent. Drink in 2021 but already a joy to drink.
Dark tones of black currant, blackberry and violet mark this broad, muscular red, which is burly on the compact finish, with an earthy aftertaste, yet there is energy and resonance too. Best from 2022 through 2037.
A pretty if restrained nose speaks of various wild red berries, earth and once again sauvage nuances. The supple yet concentrated medium weight flavors possess both fine volume and detail on the punchy and lightly mineral-inflected finale that is less rustic than usual. What is entirely typical though is the expected aging curve as this is almost certainly to be extremely long-lived. *Outstanding*
One of the highlights of the range this year, the 2015 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Porêts-Saint-Georges offers up a brooding bouquet of crushed currants, currant leaf, rich soil and grilled game bird. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and chewy with bright, crunchy fruit but a formidable chassis of fine-grained tannins which will demand a good decade in the cellar. For those with patience, this should be a fine proposition. (WK)
(15% vendange entier; 50% new oak): Bright ruby-red. Black cherry, licorice and an oaky note on the somewhat compressed nose. Densely packed, spicy and seamless, with the enveloping texture, dark-fruit intensity and saline minerality to buffer its serious structure. The very long finish features repeating salty minerality, with the tannins coating the sides of the tongue. This very warm site is always the first to be harvested at Faiveley following their vineyards on the Côte de Beaune. (ST)
