2018 Domaine Faiveley Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1466157 96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Latricières is the coolest of Gevrey-Chambertin's array of Grands Crus and really comes into its own in years like 2018 when the summer is like a furnace. This parcel is located close to Clos de la Roche in Morey-St-Denis at the foot of the Combe Grisard and has produced a saline, rose petal-perfumed Pinot Noir of balletic poise and elegance with just the right amount of underlying grip and focus. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Aromas of cassis, wild berries, blood orange and coniferous forest floor introduce the 2018 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru, a full-bodied, immensely refined wine that's built around powdery tannins and a bright spine of acidity. Long and perfumed, this is a superb bottle in the making that will reward bottle age. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark There is very good freshness to the ripe but cool aromas of red and dark raspberry, forest floor, spice and a whiff of wood. The intensely mineral-driven middle weight plus flavors pack impressive punch and a taut muscularity along with outstanding depth, precision and sneaky good length on the firm, austere and built-to-age finale. This refined effort is terrific and very Latricières in character. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

94-97 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Their holding is by the Combe Grisard with lots of stones. Gorgeous deep purple, fresher than the Charmes. A wealth of warmly ripe fruit with a spice or two, but not over the top. Perfumed, ripe cherries, an excellent concentration of fruit across the palate. The fruit is fresher and marries better with the tannins than Charmes. Spice from the stones. Interesting, complex wine, recommended!" (10/2019)
