FAIVELEY FAIVELEY - Clos de Vougeot Grand cru  - 2016

FAIVELEY Clos de Vougeot Grand cru 2016

See the wine detail page

94 Points

The Faiveleys’ three parcels of Clos de Vougeot - one in the middle and two in the lower part of the Grand Cru - were untouched by the frost in 2016. The result is an impressive, plushly fruited Pinot Noir that combines floral scents with fruit weight, grippy tannins and a savoury finish.
