2017 Domaine Faiveley Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru (Previously $210)

SKU #1444038 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Black cherries and plums with an intense, earthy note. Great depth and structure, the power married to cool freshness that gives this great vitality. Enormously long and complex finish. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

93-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru comes from a parcel that Erwan Faiveley candidly said is less consistent, at the mercy of the weather and dependent on a dry season. It has a charming, quite effervescent bouquet of raspberry and cranberry fruit infused with candied orange peel. A tangible sense of mineralité develops with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied, displaying gentle grip, good structure and maybe a little more detail and tension than the Echézeaux at the moment. Good potential. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This is a distinctly serious Clos de Vougeot from the Faiveleys, sourced from three parcels in the Clos, two high and one lower, adding up to 1.3ha. It's rich, dense and showing what technical director, Jérôme Flous calls 'attractive rusticity', a sensitively oaked wine that's spicy and well balanced. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has turned out very well indeed, wafting from the glass with a lovely bouquet of dark wild berries, smoked meats, incense, spices and dark chocolate that's framed by a lavish but nicely integrated application of high-quality new oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and velvety, with a layered and impressively concentrated core, melting tannins and a long, sapid finish. It's one of the highlights of Faiveley's red portfolio this year, punching above its weight in the usual hierarchy. (WK) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A sleek red, with well-defined cherry, floral, spice and earth notes aligned to a firm structure. This is reserved for now, with an expanding finish that emphasizes the oak spice and dark fruit elements. Inner quote mark (3/2020)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Here too the wood treatment is less than subtle though on the ripe and fresh earth-inflected aromas of wild red and dark berries, violet and a hint of leather. There is better volume to the rich and well-muscled flavors that possess better mid-palate concentration if less refinement, all wrapped in a youthfully austere and impressively persistent if rustic finish. I like the complexity and overall, there is just a bit more here. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

93-96 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "From three plots, not the best placed but suited to the drier years such as 2017. Very dense deep colour. This has solid concentrated density of dark red fruit, firm structure behind, a Clos Vougeot that knows it is a Clos Vougeot. It will need several years in bottle to show its true colours, but all the ingredients are there. Quite well muscled tannins at the back." (01/2019)
