Professional Wine Reviews for Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin Clos D'issarts 1er 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)

Additional Information on Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin Clos D'issarts 1er 2014

Winery: Faiveley

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir translates as 'black pine' in French, and is named as such due to the extremely inky color of the fruits, which hang in bunches the shape of a pine cone. Wineries often struggle with Pinot Noir vines, as more than most red wine grape varietals, they fail in hot temperatures and are rather susceptible to various diseases which can be disastrous when hoping for a late harvest. Thanks to new technologies and methods for avoiding such problems, however, the Pinot Noir grape varietal has spread across the world to almost every major wine producing country. Why? Quite simply because this is considered to be one of the finest grape varietals one can cultivate, due to the fact that it can be used to produce a wide range of excellent wines full of interesting, fresh and fascinating flavors Their thin skins result in a fairly light-bodied wine, and the juices carry beautiful notes of summer fruits, currants and berries, and many, many more.

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

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
