"Bright red-ruby. Lovely perfumed aromas of rose petal, minerals and espresso. Boasts superb definition and energy in the mouth, accentuated by a high level of CO2. Youthfully backward and very long, showing no edges. This is always the Faiveley grand cru picked with the lowest potential alcohol, noted technical manager Jerôme Flous. Quite uncompromising in the early going." 91-94 Stephen Tanzer
Located in the commune of Flagey-Echézeaux and made famous by the Domaine the La Romanee Conti, the appellation, like it’s northern neighbour (Clos Vougeot), can make wines in varying quality. At it’s best, the wines are long lived, with red and black fruits characters, forest floor and are robust and meaty.
