Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos de Issarts 2016

Domaine Faiveley


Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions that have been practiced for centuries within their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage, benefits from special attention which makes the cuvées unique. Each bottle therefore becomes the faithful reflection of its terroir.

Terroir: Domaine Faiveley acquired the 1er Cru Clos des Issarts in 2002 after leasing it for over 50 years. This 1.5 acre parcel sits south of the village and directly adjacent to Grand Cru Ruchottes-Chambertin. Soils here are rich in limestone and exposure is east/ northeast.

Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a 21 day maceration the must undergoes primary fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and wooden vats. The young wines are aged in 70% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 16 to 18 months.

    (destemmed): Good dark red. Captivating perfume of raspberry, spices, crushed stone and red licorice. Intensely flavored and penetrating, boasting terrific energy and lift to its flavors of red berries, minerals and flowers. Very concentrated and dense but conveys a weightless impression. The palate-saturating finish offers spectacular rising perfume. A wine from very stony soil: I'm sure I would have picked it blind as coming from Chambolle-Musigny.
    Grade: 93-95 Points
