DESCRIPTION

(all destemmed; 55% new oak; Faiveley will add "en Orveaux" to the front label of this wine with the 2015 release; these vines next to La Combe d'Orveau and Petit Musigny face south but are situated on very poor soil in a cold combe): Dark red. Highly complex, cooler aromas of strawberry rhubarb pie, minerals and spicy underbrush. Supple in texture but also boasts electric energy and terrific delineation. Dense and savory but not a fleshy style. Finishes with suave tannins and superb subtle persistence. This sexy if somewhat idiosyncratic wine will be most appreciated by those who crave energy and salinity in their Burgundies.  Vinous/Steve Tanzer 92-95

Background wisps of wood easily allow the spiced and quite floral-scented plum, red currant and dark cherry aromas to shine. There is good minerality to the seductively textured, velvety and even opulent medium weight flavors that display good power and punch on the relatively refined, balanced and beautifully persistent finish. The supporting tannins are dense but fine and this should drink well after 7 to 8 years of bottle age yet successfully age for far longer if that's your preference. Burghound 92-94
