Professional Wine Reviews for Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin Clos D'issarts 1er Pinot Noir 2014

Rated 93 by Stephen Tanzer
Bright red-ruby. Lovely perfume and chalky lift to the aromas of blackberry, violet, minerals and bitter chocolate; this smells like Vosne-Romanée. Pure liquid silk in the mouth, offering flavors of black cherry and saline minerality. Finishes saline, suave and dry, still holding a lot in reserve. Firmly tannic but not dry. The old vines here are more than 60 years of age but half of this vineyard was replanted in 2003 and the young vines have gone into this wine since 2011.
Rated 93 by Decanter
This is aromatically more elegant with its airy and cool nose that mixes both red and dark currant, earth and hints of both wild flowers and game. There is a notably more refined mouth feel to the equally cool and stony middle weight flavors that are a bit more energetic if not as rich or muscular, all wrapped in a balanced and mildly austere finale. This is lovely and fashioned in an understated style that should be approachable after only 6 to 8 years of age. (Burghound)

Winery Faiveley

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is one of the planet's most widely grown and enjoyed grape varietals, and thanks to the popularity of the key wines it is associated with – Burgundy and Champagne – it has successfully spread from its native home in France to much of the wine producing world. Pinot Noir means 'black pine' in French, and this refers to the extremely dark, inky color of the fruit, and the fact that it grows in conical bunches, resembling a large pine cone. It has long been revered for its wide range of refreshing, summery flavors, and the fact that it produces red wines of a beautiful garnet color and light body. More recently, sparkling wines made exclusively with Pinot Noir have been extremely popular, and the orchard notes found in the fizzy 'blanc des noirs' wines mark out just how versatile this grape varietal really is. Despite being notoriously difficult to grow, it isn't hard to see why this grape is now found in vineyards all over the world, as it is synonymous with romance and decadence, quality and fantastic flavor

Region: Burgundy

There are few more famous wine regions in the world than Burgundy, and this special area has given much to raise the profile of fine French wines around the world. Although most commonly associated with excellent quality red wines made with the Pinot Noir varietal, this region is home to several red and white varietals and produces and impressive range of wines, from still to sparkling, dry to sweet, full bodied and aged, and from to light and drinkable. The region of Burgundy has been producing excellent wines for centuries, with much evidence to suggest that the ancient Gauls were the first to cultivate the native vines which flourish here in the warm summers, and on the excellent soil fed by local rivers. This type of heritage has led to a wine industry highly unique, deeply traditional, and with an exquisite reputation to uphold.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
