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

Regularly described as being the grape varietal responsible for producing the world's most romantic wines, Pinot Noir has long been associated with elegance and a broad range of flavors The name means 'black pine' in French, and this is due to the fact that the fruit of this particular varietal is especially dark in color, and hangs in a conical shape, like that of a pine cone. Despite being grown today in almost every wine producing country, Pinot Noir is a notoriously difficult grape variety to cultivate. This is because it is especially susceptible to various forms of mold and mildew, and thrives best in steady, cooler climates. However, the quality of the fruit has ensured that wineries and vintners have persevered with the varietal, and new technologies and methods have overcome many of the problems it presents. Alongside this, the wide popularity and enthusiasm for this grape has ensured it will remain a firm favorite amongst wine drinkers for many years to come.

Region: Burgundy

The beautiful region of Burgundy in France is famously home to some of the most exquisite red wines to be found anywhere on earth, and is most commonly associated with the silky, elegant and flavorful Pinot Noir varietal wines which are commonly produced there. However, the superb and mineral rich soils fed by the Rhone river, and the long hot summers and mild autumns of the region produce a wide variety of fine grapes, and as such, Burgundy produces plenty of different wines which are equally as good as the produce the region is famed for. The region of Burgundy itself has a wine-making history which stretches back at least two thousand years, and as such, it comes as no surprise that the wineries which fill the dozens of controlled appellations of the region rely heavily on traditional methods and techniques when it comes to producing their famous wines.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
