2003 domaine faiveley, latricieres-chambertin grand cru
Why We're Buying
Ultra-expensive wines are par for the course at Domaine Faiveley. This pinot noir from Latricieres-Chambertin Grand Cru retails north of $200 and ranks as one of the most sought-after wines from the appellation. In 2020, it’s returned 11.4% on investment.
Normally I have a slight preference for the elegance and refinement of the Faiveley Latricières compared to the power and animale character of the Mazis but not in 2003 as the latter is actually a bit more elegant and refined. The Latricières is rich, full and expressive with superb depth of extract but not the same degree of freshness and precision and the usual mineral component is presently absent. That said, the sheer complexity here is impressive and I suspect this will come together as it's not showing its usual superb level of quality. Drink: 2013+ 90-93 Points
