Well situated next to the Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru, the Faiveley holdings come from two terraces that are fermented separately. Never opulent, even in a vintage like 2018, this is floral, racy and textured, with a hint of ageworthy reduction, crunchy acidity and expertly integrated 50% new wood. A Gevrey for people who like finesse in their Pinot Noir. (TA)
There are 10 barrels of Domaine Faiveley's 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos des Issarts Monopole, a lovely wine that opens in the glass to reveal aromas of cassis, smoked meats, dark chocolate and earthy forest floor. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with a deep core of succulent fruit, rich and refined tannins and a sapid finish. (WK)
Soft wood sets off the floral-inflected nose of mostly red and dark currant aromas that possess background wisps of the sauvage and floral hints. The supple and rounded flavors possess an almost gentle mouthfeel that exhibit reasonably good depth and persistence on the firm but not hard finish. This is not particularly dense or powerful which should permit it to drink well earlier on.
