Musigny, Domaine Faiveley 2018

Tasting Notes

Moderately prominent wood frames strikingly elegant purple fruit, in particular plum, along with a broad array of Asia tea, exotic spice and floral nuances. There is evident refinement to the pure and attractively vibrant medium weight plus flavors that possess superb mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in a firm, balanced and gorgeously lingering finale. A classic Musigny of velvet-wrapped power and grace.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (77), January 2020

There's an almost unprecedented 400 bottles of Faiveley's 2018 Musigny Grand Cru this year, a tiny cuvée that was vinified with 50% whole cluster. Soaring from the glass with a profound bouquet of cherries, wild berries, peonies, incense and licorice, the wine is full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, with superb balance and a long, resonant finish. This is one wine that has entirely sublimated the sun-kissed sweetness that defines the vintage, the terroir effortlessly dominating the year.
