FAIVELEY FAIVELEY - Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos des Issarts Monopole - 2016

FAIVELEY Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos des Issarts Monopole 2016

See the wine detail page

94 Points

Located next to Ruchottes-Chambertin in the corner of the Combe de Lavaux, this is one of those Gevrey Premiers Crus that’s often overlooked, located on stony, limestone-based soils. The resulting wine is serious and intense with heady perfume, chalky freshness and lovely poise and grace.
