"Hints of earth and animal lead off, followed by flavors of cherry, plum, mineral and tobacco. Solidly built and brooding now, with a line of dusty tannins on the finish. Be patient. Best from 2022 through 2037. 2,000 cases made. -BS " (WS)

"Moderately saturated medium red. A touch of reduction to the aromas of dusty redcurrant, plum, iron and game. Supple flavors of red berries and dried flowers are complicated by hints of tobacco and spices. Finishes with a broad dusting of light tannins and moderate length. Could use a bit more verve but this village wine displays the added stuffing of the year. This is the first year for this cuvée, which is made from the best plots of the nearly ten hectares of village Gevrey vines owned by Faiveley." (VM)
