Burghound, January 2014,
Reduction. The medium weight flavors are very much built on the underlying minerality that adds lift to the already wonderfully vibrant, intense and gorgeously textured finish. As is almost always the case this is youthfully austere and understated and this will also require several years before the mid-palate fleshes out sufficiently to merit my projected range. In other words, this isn't a good candidate for early drinking. Drink 2022+

Good bright, deep red. Deeper-pitched on the nose than the Combe d'Orveaux, with a touch of smoky reduction to the redcurrant and mocha aromas. Densely packed but youthfully reticent, hinting at minerals, smoke, earth, rust and stone. Finishes with a saline element. This is more about Bonnes-Mares earth tones while the Combe d'Orveaux is in a higher-pitched Musigny style. Drink 2020+
Maison Joseph Faiveley
This Burgundian domaine of 120 hectares has been a family estate for more than 180 years. Erwan Faiveley, 7th generation, took the reins from his father 2 years ago when he was only 25. They have earned their reputation as one of Burgundy's finest and most trusted, with an unparalleledselection from the Côte de Nuits and Côte Chalonnaise. Domaine Faiveley owns some of the best slopes of the region with some located in Mercurey and Corton Grand Cru and Premier Cru. Following principles of strict quality control, the family produce great wines across thirty appellations in an elegant, graceful and well-structured style.
The wines of Chambolle Musigny are like no other. They can be superbly delicate, yet mindblowingly complex. Of all the northern Burgundy appellations, they are the most ethereal, and as a result the most feminine. Most of the Chambolle Musigny vineyard area is encompassed in its Village and Premier Cru appellations including the robust Beaux Bruns, the splendidly mineral Le Cras and the poised yet powerful Les Amoureuses. It produces only two Grand Crus - the round and rich Bonnes Mares which it shares with Morey St. Dénis, as well as what could be described as the Stradivarius of grand crus, Musigny.
