    Winemaker's Notes:

    Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions that have been practiced for centuries within their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage, benefits from special attention which makes the cuvees unique. Each bottle therefore becomes the faithful reflection of its terroir.

    Grand Cru Clos de Vougeot sits on the lower slope within the village of Vosne-Romanee directly below the Grand Cru's of Le Musigny and Grands Echezeaux. One of the largest of Grand Crus; the 123+ acres are heavily fragmented, Domaine Faiveley owns 3.18 acres spread across multiple parcels.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This too is very deftly oaked with an earthy and very ripe mix of briar, dark berry fruit and pungent underbrush aromas leading to muscled, energetic and sappy flavors where the mid-palate fat almost completely buffers the firm though not aggressive tannins that add a chewy texture to the gorgeously long finish. There is a really attractive underlying tension here but like most of these grands crus, this is a wine for the patient that will last for decades.

    Good deep ruby-red. Highly perfumed nose combines raspberry, minerals and licorice. Sappy and vibrant, with terrific underlying spine framing the dense, mineral-driven berry flavors. Quite youthfully tannic-in fact, this seemed to shut down in the bottle-but not hard. Has the energy and length for an extended evolution. 92(+?) points
