Faiveley, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru 1998, LA Combe aux Moines
This truly is a remarkable terroir, during the construction of the Château de Gevrey-Chambertin, the monks of Cluny would gather in the valley after a hard day of labouring the vineyards. The soils in this parcel are the same as in “Les Cazetiers” although the parcel is located slightly higher up.
Colour: Intense ruby red
Scent: Elegant and complex, with notes of fresh red fruit, spicy nuances and notes of noble woods and white pepper
Taste: Wide, fine and complex, with fruity aromas and light toasty and woody nuances
