Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru La Combe d'Orveau 2015

Domaine Faiveley

Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions that have been practiced for centuries within their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage, benefits from special attention which makes the cuvées unique. Each bottle therefore becomes the faithful reflection of its terroir.

Terroir: 1er Cru "La Combe d'Orveau (golden valley) is situated just above the Grand Cru Musigny and shares an almost identical terroir. Domaine Faiveley's small .64 acre parcel sits mid slope with an ideal south/ southeast exposure and stony, shallow limestone soils.

Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a 18-20 day maceration the must undergoes primary fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and wooden vats. The young wines are aged in 70% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 14 to 16 months.

    (50% new oak; 25% vendange entier; from very thin stony soil): Healthy dark red. Very ripe but reduced aromas of raspberry, black cherry and smoky, flinty minerality, plus a light meaty nuance; almost liqueur-like in the context of this collection. Plush, silky and dense but youthfully reduced, showing considerably more flesh to support its serious tannins than the Charmes. With time in the glass, notes of cherry and flowers emerged, along with subtle soil tones. Finishes with serious but fine-grained horizontal tannins and lovely lingering sweetness.

    Grade: 91-94 Points

    This too is sufficiently reduced to push the underlying fruit to the background. By contrast there is an equally refined mouth feel to the highly seductive and tension-filled medium weight flavors that ooze a fine bead of minerality on the velvety finish that just goes on and on. This is first-rate and highly recommended plus it should drink well after only 5-ish years or so of bottle age but amply reward 10+.
