The full, earthy and smoky nose with nice cherries and floral nuances, draws you into this generous Gevrey-Chambertin that has a solid tannic base. The long finish is quite dry, so better from 2021.
Ripe, with an earthy cast to the black cherry, black currant and sweet spice flavors. Rich and pliable in texture, this is harmonious, building to a lingering, mouthwatering finish. (BS)
Notes of forest floor and underbrush add breadth to the aromas of red currant, violet and a whiff of oak. The sleek and relatively refined medium-bodied flavors exude a subtle minerality on the delicious, punchy and balanced finish. This excellent effort is presently slightly strict and will need a few years to unwind and better flesh out. *Outstanding Top value*
The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes comes from about nine hectares around the appellation, although usually around one-third is sold off. It has an attractive bouquet of raspberry, cranberry and wet limestone aromas. The palate is a little chewy on the entry, but there is good acidity and plenty of crunchy red berry fruit. The correct, short but focused finish is quite Morey-like in style. Drink over the next eight to 10 years. (NM)
Wafting from the glass with an inviting bouquet of ripe berry fruit, spices, forest floor and blood orange, Domaine Faiveley's 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes is medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with ripe but succulent acids and melting tannins that frame a fleshy and attractively sapid core of fruit, concluding with a flavorful finish. This is an excellent Gevrey that's already nicely integrated and which will offer a wide drinking window. Faiveley's 2017 portfolio showed well from barrel, and their promise was confirmed when I revisited an extensive range from bottle. Fragrant, elegantly textural and incisive, these are some of the finest white wines produced at this address for some time; and the white wines are complemented by a range of supple, succulent reds that will offer a broad drinking window, even if they don't quite hit the highs attained in 2016. These wines come warmly recommended. (WK)
