Domaine Faiveley Latricieres Chambertin 2009
The Domaine Faiveley Latricieres Chambertin is sourced from a single plot of 2.98 acres from within the southern portion of the vineyard. This single terroir runs down the hillside with an ideal eastern exposure and well-draining soils of silica (silex or ground stone/sand). Vines date back to 1958.
In 1825, Pierre Faiveley founded the firm that now bears the name Domaine Faiveley. At that time, the firm was classic negociant, buying and selling wine. But from generation to generation, with a firm commitment to the quality of Burgundy's patrimony, the Faiveley family has purchased vineyard and is today among the largest owners of classified vineyards in the Cote de Nuits, Cote de Beaune and Cotes Chalonnaise. All together the firm owns some 120 hectare of vineyards among which 10 hectares are grands crus and 25, premiers crus. The objective of the family today, led by Erwan Faiveley, is to increase the firm's holdings of great vineyards so that there can be complete control from vine to bottle across the entire range of wines. Along with this focus, Erwan Faiveley and General Manager Bernard Hervet have renovated the cellars which now boast state of the art barrel presses, custom designed wooden vats and among the finest, air cured oak casks available in the world. Today, the wines of Domaine Faiveley are widely recognized for being among the finest produced in Burgundy and Domaine Faiveley among the finest wine producers in the world.

BurghoundA reserved yet ultra elegant, airy and quite cool nose, particularly in the context of this notably ripe vintage, speaks of perfumed and very fresh red currant, stone and a hint of spiced floral notes. The mouth coating, rich and overtly muscular flavors possess outstanding detail and even more minerality than is suggested by the nose, all wrapped in a very serious and hugely long finish that is a bit less austere than usual. A stunner. 92-95
