domaine faiveley, latricieres-chambertin grand cru 2017
A moderately toasty nose is composed by notes of the essence of wild dark berries and humus along with soft spice and floral nuances. There is a bit better mid-palate density to the richer and much more mineral-driven and refined flavors that display excellent delineation on the linear, focused and mouth coating finish. This is youthfully austere effort is beautifully well-balanced and should age accordingly.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru is showing very well, wafting from the glass with an already expressive bouquet of wild berries, warm spices, peonies and coniferous forest floor. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and enveloping, with a velvety attack, ripe but racy acids, powdery tannins and a long, penetrating finish. The marriage between Latricières's tensile tendencies and the inherently open-knit, supple profile of the vintage make for a charming, precious rendition of this routinely superb cuvée, and it can already be approached with immense pleasure.
This red is engaging for the pure raspberry, strawberry and rose aromas. The ripe fruit flavors are augmented by vegetal, graphite and spice accents. Firms up on the finish, where oak spice elements emerge. Best from 2023 through 2042.
