Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru

Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru

Lobenberg 96

-- TA: Made with fruit from three parcels within the Clos, two of them in the wetter soils near the route nationale, this gives the lie to the line that the best wines only come from the upper slopes. This is aromatic and fine, with the weight and focus you expect from a top Clos de Vougeot, good freshness and red fruits’ succulence. 97/100

-- BH: This isn't quite as spicy as the Ech but it's just as fresh with a brooding and highly complex nose of pungently earthy dark berry fruit and lightly floral-inflected scents. While this is concentrated and serious the supporting tannins shaping the moderately big-bodied flavors are relatively fine-grained. There is a real sense of focus and controlled power that allows this to retain a lovely sense of balance and harmony on the beautifully long finish. Note that like several of the wines in the range, this is expressly intended to age and it will need it. 92-94/100

-- IWC: Good medium red. Reticent aroma of black cherry and menthol. Juicy, herbal and on the dry side; quite backward and savory. Most impressive today on the back end, which shows suave, broad tannins and lovely subtle lingering fruit. Long on potential but youthfully clenched at present. Faiveley owns one parcel at the top of the Clos and two at the bottom. Fruit from the less-good of the two bottom pieces was previously sold off but these vines now produce a lower crop level and more concentrated fruit as Faiveley went to cordon royat pruning here several years ago. 91-94/100

Domaine Faiveley

Die ca. 120 Hektar umfassende Domaine Faiveley ist eines der größten Weingüter im Burgund. Hier macht man, anders als die großen Handelshäuser wie z.B. Jadot oder Bouchard, ausschließlich Weine von eigenem Besitz. 1825 gegründet, stieg die Qualität und Bedeutung mit jedem Stabwechsel an die jüngere Generation. Heute wird es von Francois Faiveley mit seinem Sohn Erwan geleitet, der seit 2007 offiziell (jetzt in siebter Generation) die Verantwortung trägt. […]
