Latricières Chambertin Grand Cru 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: The Domaine Faiveley Latricières Chambertin is sourced from a single plot of 2.98 acres from within the southern portion of the overall vineyard. This single terroir runs down the hillside with an ideal eastern exposure and loose well-drained soils of silica (silex or ground stone/sand). Vines date back to 1958.

Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a short 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.

Additional Information

Intense ruby red hue and complex nose offering rich roasted notes and spice. The palate opens up with rich, silky tannins that give way to a powerful and complex structure.

    "There is a fluidity here, along with pure black currant, black cherry and violet flavors and a balanced whole that makes this red feel very comfortable in its own skin. All that to say this is almost seamless and, given the long aftertaste, shows terrific potential. Features a long, mineral aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2047."

    "Old vines dating to 1958 are the basis of this concentrated wine. Bold tannins and swathes of black fruits combine with the structure to give a wine that is superb and has an enormous life ahead. Wait at least until 2025."

    (from very old vines; no frost here): Healthy dark red with ruby tones. Aromas of dark berries and coffee with cream on top. At once densely packed and perfumed in the mouth, with crushed raspberry and cranberry flavors lifted by violet. Spreads out horizontally on the back end, finishing with terrific class and ineffable rising perfume of spices and flowers. The tannins here are linear and firm but not hard. A very classy, scented grand cru in the making.

    "(from a very large 1.21 ha parcel). Here too the wood treatment is subtle yet just prominent enough to warrant pointing out on the cool, pure and notably more sauvage nose of both red and dark wild berry and earth scents. There is a really lovely sense of underlying tension suffusing the much more mineral-driven middle weight flavors that are not quite as rich but notably more precise on the chiseled and wonderfully refined finish.
