2011 Domaine Faiveley Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Damodes"

SKU #1153010 91-94 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (50% new oak; no whole clusters): Good bright, deep red. Soil-driven aromas and flavors of red berries, caraway seed, mocha, chocolate and spices, lifted by a floral topnote. Tactile and intense, with strong saline minerality contributing to the impression of energy and precision. Finishes with suave, fine-grained tannins and excellent lift. Inner quote mark (1/2013)

90-92 points Burghound

Outer quote mark A spicy, fresh and mildly exotic nose of tea, wild red berries and plenty of pungent earth gives way to more obvious mineral-inflected flavors that possess a taut muscularity on the balanced, understated and attractively persistent finish. Even with the muscle, this is essentially a wine of finesse as the supporting tannins are really quite fine. Inner quote mark (1/2013)

K&L Notes

From a vineyard on the Vosne side of the village, with prominent white limestone and relatively little topsoil. This has more mid-palate than this site sometimes delivers, with a fascinating combination of Nuits minerality and Vosne richness. Lovely, complete and well-balanced. Extraordinary! (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy buyer, 2/2013)
