DESCRIPTION

Burghound (Allen Meadows) 93-96 "Don't Miss!"

"A ripe yet airy and cool nose offers up aromas of essence of red and dark raspberry with plenty of floral influence along with subtle spice, earth and herbal tea nuances. There is terrific concentration to the rich and remarkably concentrated medium weight plus flavors that brim with both minerality and sappy dry extract, all wrapped in a saline, balanced and highly persistent finish that just doesn't stop. I often have a very small preference for the Mazis chez Faiveley but in 2015 the Latricières may very well better it."

 

Decanter (Tim Atkin) 97

"Erwan Faiveley thinks this is one of the wines of the vintage chez Faiveley, and I couldn't agree with him more. Showing the classic coolness and haughty reserve of Latricières, the most elegant of the Gevrey Grands Crus, it's chalky and refined with subtle oak and nuanced, pomegranate and wild strawberry flavours. 2022-30."

 

James Suckling 95

"In spite of the very ripe plums and black cherries on the nose, this has a lot of smoky and flinty notes. Cool, firm and minerally on the palate, and a lot of drive at the finish. This has a couple of decades of aging potential if you can resist it now."

 

Vinous Media (Stephen Tanzer) 93-96

"Healthy dark red-ruby. Captivating exotic spices currently dominate the nose. Plush, saline, soil-driven wine, offering a rare balance of sheer layered ripeness and pronounced minerality. This big boy is more savory than sweet, and its substantial ripe tannins are totally buffered by mid-palate stuffing. Erwan Faiveley described this wine as his favorite of the vintage, while technical directlor Jerome Flous called it his "desert island wine." This cool site has clearly benefited from the extra density brought by the conditions of 2015."
