2016 Joseph Faiveley Bourgogne Rouge

SKU #1386735 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Faiveley's 2016 Bourgogne Pinot Noir reveals a lovely bouquet of ripe cherries, grilled meats and woodsmoke, framed by a light touch of reduction that rapidly dissipates in the glass. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with juicy acids and youthfully chewy structuring tannins. It's a hearty, successful effort in a vintage that didn't always lend itself to generic Bourgogne, which tended to be hit hard by frost. (WK)  (4/2019)

Wine Spectator

 Rich, sporting black cherry and blackberry flavors, accented by smoke, earth and spice notes. Assertive tannins gird the finish. (BS, Web Only-2019)

K&L Notes

From the importer: "Joseph Faiveley Bourgogne Rouge is sourced from vineyards spread throughout the terroirs of the Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and the Côte Chalonnaise. The Bourgogne Rouge is vinified in the cellars of Domaine Faiveley for 12 to 14 months in the same manner as their broad selection of reds from the Côte de Nuits. A beautiful ruby color. This wine has pleasant, fresh, red-fruit aromas on the nose, which we find again on the palate. It has rich and very ripe substance, with fine round tannins. It’s a very well-structured and pleasing wine."

The 2016 Faiveley Pinot Noir is in a wonderful place currently. Always a meaty wine, it has really opened up of late. Dark fruits cede to wonderful aromas of macerated berries and cola notes. The palate is robust and feels very Côte de Nuits, with a subtle nod towards Gevrey. This is a wonderful Bourgogne rouge, and easily drinks like a wine double the price.
