Musigny Grand Cru 2019

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 famed vineyard of Musigny sits high on the hillside adjacent to Echézeaux to the south and Clos de Vougeot direct below. Domaine Faiveley owns approximately .08 acres of the heavily divided 30 acre vineyard. Exposure is mainly east/ southeast with soils of shallow limestone, red clay and gravel.

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

Incredible layers of black fruits, spice, earth, and oak on the captivating nose and mouth. Complex, rich, bright, beautiful flavors with a bold and powerful structure.

    "The 2019 Musigny Grand Cru is a magical wine in the making, soaring from the glass with scents of peonies, blood orange, wild berries, rose petals and subtle hints of musk and smoked duck. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and sumptuous, it's deep and pure, with ultra-refined structuring tannins, lively acids and a long, exquisitely perfumed finish. Given the tiny production, this isn't a cuvée that one encounters with any regularity, but readers with the requisite disposable income who encounter a bottle or two shouldn't hesitate."
    Grade: 95-97 points
