Issue: Issue 17
The aromatic profile here is similar to that of the Combe aux Moines as it's fresh, earthy and quite pure with very ripe red pinot fruit notes complementing lively, dense and wonderfully complex, firmly but finely structured flavors blessed with buckets of dry extract on the long, chewy but balanced finish. This is a big wine but not robust or rustic and it carries its structure with grace and elegance. A stunner of a wine.

Medium red. High-toned, expressive aromas of red fruits, flowers, spices, earth, meat and nutty oak. Silky, spicy and pungent, with lively flavors of strawberry, cranberry and rhubarb. Very suave and light on its feet. Finishes with dusty, broad, firm-edged tannins and excellent length. Faiveley was an early picker in 2003, as he is most years, and this wine would be difficult to identify as coming from a hot year.

Soil smells, gamey, earthy, pungent thick red fruit. Lot of acidity. Silky, dense. Dry and savory.
