The 2017 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru comes from the 1.3 hectares acquired by Faiveley in the 1930s.

The masculine palate is medium-bodied, with fine tannin, good weight and structure and a persistent, vivid finish that is pure joy. Superb.See detailed press review

(from a large 1.21 ha parcel). A moderately toasty nose is composed by notes of the essence of wild dark berries and humus along with soft spice and floral nuances.

This is youthfully austere effort is beautifully well-balanced and should age accordingly.See detailed press review
