2018 Domaine Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Clos des Issarts"

SKU #1514968 94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Well situated next to the Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru, the Faiveley holdings come from two terraces that are fermented separately. Never opulent, even in a vintage like 2018, this is floral, racy and textured, with a hint of ageworthy reduction, crunchy acidity and expertly integrated 50% new wood. A Gevrey for people who like finesse in their Pinot Noir. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark There are 10 barrels of Domaine Faiveley's 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos des Issarts Monopole, a lovely wine that opens in the glass to reveal aromas of cassis, smoked meats, dark chocolate and earthy forest floor. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with a deep core of succulent fruit, rich and refined tannins and a sapid finish. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Soft wood sets off the floral-inflected nose of mostly red and dark currant aromas that possess background wisps of the sauvage and floral hints. The supple and rounded flavors possess an almost gentle mouthfeel that exhibit reasonably good depth and persistence on the firm but not hard finish. This is not particularly dense or powerful which should permit it to drink well earlier on. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

92-94 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Planted north-south which keeps the ripening slow. Faiveley have been farming the property since 1990, and were able to buy it in 2003. Almost a white soil here, thinks Erwan, which is why it makes a very perfumed red. In fact Jérôme Flous separated out the two terraces as an experiment in 2018 and found that it is the upper part that provides the perfume. They have since been blended together. Beautiful fresh purple here with a superb energetic raspberry and redcurrant fruit. Very lively, the florality is there and the dark fruit weight. Pure and stylish with a fresh white pepper touch, offering elegance yet with enough intensity and a fine grain of tannins behind. (10/2019)
