Domaine Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin 'Vieilles Vignes' 2019
93 points Decanter "Assembled from over twenty lieux-dits, with a domaine-owned surface area of over nine hectares in the village-level Gevrey-Chambertin appellation. A proportion was fermented as whole cluster and the wine aged in cask, one quarter new. This is less forward than some, but lovely red and black berry fruit open up on the palate. There is significant density, but also a straight tannic line that carries the wine through to a lovely finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2039."
92 points James Suckling "This is just what you expect from a village-level Gevrey-Chambertin. Generous and quite earthy with full, supple tannins, but also enough acidity to keep the supple, long finish on track. A blend of many different lots from 12 hectares / almost 30 acres of vineyards! Drink now. "
92 points Wine Spectator "Lithe and delineated, this red features pure cherry, raspberry, iron and tobacco flavors. Tightly wound now, but shows excellent balance and length overall. Best from 2024 through 2040."
*Outstanding Top value" 89-91 points Allen Meadows, Burghound "Notes of forest floor and underbrush add breadth to the aromas of red currant, violet and a whiff of oak. The sleek and relatively refined medium-bodied flavors exude a subtle minerality on the delicious, punchy and balanced finish. This excellent effort is presently slightly strict and will need a few years to unwind and better flesh out."
