Decanter über: Musigny Grand Cru

-- Decanter: A stunningly beautiful wine from two small plots that total 0.13ha. The grapes are fermented as 50% whole clusters and since there is so little fruit, the wine is fermented directly in the same cask it will age in (fermentation integrale). There is more than enough substance to overcome the oak, however, and this has profuse aromas that range from pomegranate to black cherry and plum, accented with floral notes of rose petal and peonies, then exotic spices such as star anise and liquorice, along with a bit of smoke from the casks. 99/100


Tim Atkin über: Musigny Grand Cru

-- Tim Atkin: Chocolate, cassis, black plums and pine needles... the list of aromatics goes on and on. This is dense in flavor yet buoyed by crackling acidity. It is complex and long, yet it is approachable as it is cerebral. The tannins stay silky smooth through the dreamy, long finish. This is aged entirely in 'Musignettes', or 60-liter mini barrels hand-crafted for Faiveley by François Frères. 2023-44. 97/100


Galloni über: Musigny Grand Cru

-- Galloni: The 2020 Musigny Grand Cru is de-stemmed with hand with the central stem removed. It comprises of three feuillettes this year, equivalent to around 450 bottles (this continues the tradition of using feuillettes when you could use one tailor-made barrel.) Containing 50% whole bunch and only new wood, it has a fragrant bouquet that is beautifully-defined with exuberant red fruit, crushed stone and a hint of liquorice. It fans out wonderfully towards the finish, silky smooth, vivid and sensual. This is a gorgeous Musigny that will age supremely well. 96-98/100


Parker über: Musigny Grand Cru

-- Parker: The 2020 Musigny Grand Cru is exquisite, mingling aromas of wild berries and blood orange with nuances of exotic spices, forest floor, rose petals and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, multidimensional and sensual, it's beautifully refined, with vibrant acids and a silky, seamless profile, concluding with a long, licorice-inflected finish. 95-97+/100

Mein Winzer

Domaine Faiveley

Die inzwischen ca. 140 Hektar umfassende Domaine Faiveley ist eines der größten Häuser im Burgund. Und eigentlich ist es auch mehr als Weingut zu betrachten, denn hier macht man, anders als bei anderen großen Handelshäuser wie z. B. Jadot oder Bouchard, fast ausschließlich Weine von eigenem Besitz....
